I actually am loving this quilt. I have used completely random fabrics! The only thing I have paid attention to is balancing the use of prints and plains. Well what do you think? I think next charity quilt coming up is Quilt design 1. Please feel free to add more patches/blocks to make bigger quilts. Go on now make yours! and don’t forget to hashtag#easyscrappycharityquilt2018.
ps: The lucky recipients of this quilt are Marymead .
“Marymead, is a well-respected, not-for-profit organisation servicing the ACT and southern and western regional areas of NSW, providing family support services to children, young people and their families since 1967”
I have always wanted to make a quilt for charity using the hoards of scraps left over from my quilts. What better time then now during the season of giving – Christmas!. Of course it ain’t gonna happen if its not going to be an easy quilt design right? So I thought why not design a couple of quilts using a simple 5″ x 5″ square.
