So whenever these blocks start to stack up a bit, Barbara starts making quilts. And in the last month she has made 5 of them!!! Aren't they just so fun!!! Everyone is special and individual. Some use orphan blocks and some are sashed, and everyone is so cute and so fantastic!! So let's check out the latest 5 :)
First up, this adorable Play Ball QUilt. All of the color blocks are fun sport themed balls and Barbara found a bunch of fun novelty sports prints in her stash to offset the colored blocks. So fun!!
Next are these adorable Wonky 9 Patch blocks offsetting all of the fun flower coloring blocks. I love all the calming blues and greens in this quilt, so calming ;)
And this was a super fun quilt to figure out how to layout. All of the bears had been ironed on point so they had to be sewn in on point not to make them sitting on their heads :) I love how Barbara figured it out. So fun!!!
And this one is just fun, fun, fun!!! All of these were leftovers from several strip quilts and Barbara put them together with some simple sashing so the blocks didn't get lost. Yup, this is some super wild fun!!
And finally, some adorable Granny Squares offsetting colored blocks ;) Barbara made a granny square for a bee block in January and loved it so much she just kept making more. Don't they look so fun in the quilt!!! And I love the subtle rainbow layout, adorable!!
Barbara donates these to local charities and I know they are going to be so well loved!!! I just think it is so amazing that she finds a way to involve so many of her posterity in these quilts!!! What a treasure and what a wonderful way to teach her grandchildren the joy of doing things for others. I am already looking forward to seeing next years batch of coloring blocks ;)
Oh, and just in case you are wondering, sometimes the adults even get in on the coloring fun ;)
I hope you have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
