I quilted three flimsies last week. It was a hot week and my quilt room is the coolest room in the house. Thus the three finishes. Plus, they were all baby quilts.

This first one I finished is a Granny Square quilt.  You can find the instructions for this all over the internet as a free pattern. I used a jelly roll and for the life of me I cannot remember whose it was. Maybe someone out there knows.

The second one is a Pinwheel Quilt. You can find the free pattern on the Moda Bakeshop web site. I used a charm pack of 30s fabric and white muslin. It only uses one charm pack.  I love this pattern; and, I often use it as my go-to baby quilt.

The last one is a panel I picked up a few years ago. It is made from a Lewe the Lamb panel and a couple of fat quarters. I cut it apart and added some four patches, rail fences and borders to get it a little larger. As it is it is only about 28 x 38.  I would use it to keep a baby warm in the grocery store, or as a stroller quilt, or maybe a wall hanging in the nursery.

All of these are earmarked for my quilt guild; for either an auction we are having in October or for the Marine family services. I will let the guild decide where they can best be used.
Hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,

Beautiful quilts - all of them! My favourite is the pinwheel quilt. But you probably know that already. Wonderful charity quilts!
