Fabric for Charity quilt 2 of the year

Hung on the window with sun shining through it.

On the floor.

Pieced backing for the charity quilt

I am doing spiral quilting on this quilt. This is my first time doing spiral quilting with walking foot. Well I started with my all purpose foot and switched it to walking foot. I hope it turns out good. I'll be posting the finished quilt in the next day or two.

Bibs for charity

All these quilts are made from kits created by Cincinnati's Ronald McDonald House Quilt group.

This is the first Quilt I pieced, quilted and bound. I also did the layout for the quilt. I learned the importance of 1/4 inch seaming and pressing after each step of the quilting process.

My second quilt is this simple charm pack quilt, all seams pressed to the dark side of fabric. Learned to chain piece with this quilt and pieced it in no time because of that technique.

I wanted to do more than just square quilting and wanted to try chevron design I learned from Craftsy Class. There wasn't enough print squares so did a little improvising on the design. Did echo quilting which was also a take away from Craftsy Classes. I really love Craftsy.

I am not sure about this layout. Don't know what I was thinking. Too late to change anything now.

This was pieced already and given to me for quilting. I tried stippling all over this quilt. Charity quilts are great to practice different quilting designs, especially those for kids. They are small and manageable for beginner like me.
