Last year I pledged (and made) 12 quilts for Ronald McDonald House. That was a little overwhelming, so I decided on 6 quilts this year. I’ve now finished the last one, and here they are! All are about 40 inches square.
The first was made from a pattern called Ribbon Box, available free from Cloud 9 Fabrics.
The next was from the last of the many wonky 9-patch blocks. I made these for a quilt, but didn’t like the way they looked all together. Luckily they look just fine with alternate solid blocks.
The next two were to use fabric with vehicles, since sometimes we run short on “boy” quilts.
This one was made to use some of my stash of charm squares:And finally, I just had to make one using a lot of the cute modern prints I’ve been collecting:These were fun, as always. I used them to try a few new things, and now they’re ready to go 🙂
I think the charm squares one is my favorite. But wow! 6 quilts! I hope they bring love and comfort to the recipients!
It’s good to have something to do with charm squares, since they seem to jump on me 😆 Thanks for visiting!
Six finishes is an excellent accomplishment! I particularly like the wonky nine-patches.
Thank you! And thanks for visiting 😀
What an incredible commitment and dedication – hats off to you and your wonderful gifts of quilts to this charity organization!

Good work, Mary! We have 3 more months of the year and I intend to make 3 more VA Hospital quilts before the year is done. It feels good to give.
Excellent! Is there a VA hospital near you, or do you send them off somewhere?
I’ve been wanting to make that ribbon pattern pattern for a long time. It looks great!
Thanks! It was easy and fun 🙂
