Marsha these are great.  I REALLY like the second one, it just looks country and cozy.

 

Marsha-SM:

This is my June scrappy -- just a few months late!  I just got pictures taken today.  This is one of the tops that is still waiting for the batting I finally got this week!

I decided to make a few patriotic wheelchair quilts for the veterans that are in the nursing home.  Here is another variation on the 9 patch that I made that would be suitable for a man.  Most of the ones I have made before are either feminine or backed with pink or flowers or BOTH.  I have had a hard time finding masculine flannel.  I now have a dog print with blue and brown paw prints to use on them.

 

Piece, Love, Quilt

Marsha, thank you so much for the information.  I am currently making some for local nursing homes and was afraid that I was making them too small.  Your size will make mine more consistant for all donations.

Thank you, Robin.  Now I have to get the last 10 quilts sandwiched and quilted.  The binding goes fast, because it is portable and doesn't need a machine!  I should deliver the first 20 soon as winter is quickly approaching.  The Fibromyalgia fog and lethargy has hit me the last few weeks, so I haven't had the ambition to get at the quilting.  If I would just get started, I would feel so much better, but getting started is the problem.  These colorful tops cheer me up and I hope they will lift some spirits in the nursing home.

Well better late than never.....    I finally finished a couple of weeks ago.  I had to get creative with the borders because 1) I didn't have any more of the white fabric and 2) I miscut some of my new background.  Sooooo while it didn't turn out just as planned, I like it anyway :-)

 Dara, I really like your border.  Sometimes shortages and mishaps make masterpieces.

Dara--great quilt.  Your borders are great. Running out of fabric created a quilt that is lot more exciting!  This was one of my favorite Nana Projects.  Well done!

Finally got my June/2012 quilt done too. Love the way you quilted yours Helen. Also, didnt know that quiltville MQ was on here. I have been following. I would like to make the big one but need to catch up with some stuff for like Christmas, etc. Would like to do it for my youngest son, but his b day isnt until Sept but he is so tall I think the large one will work for him. So here is my quilt done except a label, but that will have to wait until after christmas because DH has already put it on the bed.
