I belong to a quilt guild that has a charity program that gives over 200 quilts each year to various agencies. I plan this coming year to make as many top out of this stash in-between doing some things for myself, family, or guild challenges. Plus it will keep me busy on something that I do not have to keep. I have enough quilts already for our personal use. The nice thing is I do not have to quilt what I finish for the program. All they require is a top and binding.
So for the start of my first top. I selected a pattern from Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison. I only needed three fabrics, but it does look like I will use up all three completely to finish this 50 by 50 inch quilt. I did discover one thing about this pattern. I had to draw out my own individual blocks instructions to make the 10.5 unfinished block sizes. There is not an exact pattern to make each block, and each one of them is different in their layout. Graph paper really worked well. I drew out 11 different layouts and that should set me up to make the 25 blocks I will need.
And now two rows done as well.
