Susan's Quilts

Whew!  That's a big pile of quilted love!  And they are almost ready to be packed into a trunk and flown to some sweet children in Rwanda. But before they go, I want to show you the quilts that Susan and her mom, Roberta, made for the New Hope Homes.
Susan used some black/bright four patch blocks that she had on hand from a block swap to  make this bundle of scrap loveliness. This is one of those quilts that you can just sit and stare at for a long time, taking in all the fabrics!
With more of those black/bright four patches to use up, Susan did a simple quilt by adding  a cute yellow polka dot, It's amazing how different it looks from the first quilt.
 Sick of the four patch blocks, she found a fun animal print and paired it with other brights and lime green rectangles for her third lap quilt. What kid wouldn't love getting such fun!
Susan and her mom, who lives in California,  share a love of quilting. Whenever they get together you can be certain that a quilt top is going to be in the works.  When Roberta heard about our effort to make quilts for the orphanage, she sent this darling quilt home with Susan on her last visit.
Tomorrow, I plan to show you the last two quilts for New Hope Homes. And then on Wednesday, a special posting of all the quilts "hanging out" together. I'm so excited to show you.....stay tuned!!


  1. Ooh! I love that first scrappy 4 patch!! wow!
