A Couple More Quilts for Oso

Have you been reading along with my collecting of Quilts for the Oso Mudslide Victims? here and here


Well, I finally got mine done!


I made two kid sized, fleece doggy themed quilts. These light look familier, e=because Santa made the kiddo one a couple of years back. And then Santa left the scraps at my house…. They have been in a bag taking up too much space since.


I tried to sell them on Craigslist… No takers.  And on my parents listserve thing. And, you guessed it… No takers. So then I thought maybe I’d donate them to out local fabric shop for Project Linus and get a discount on fabric… But I just couldn’t give it away. Yes, maybe I have some hoarding tendancies… But ys know what? It’s perfect that I never got rid of it because I made it into two quilts and 2 doll quilts!


The original one that Santa made was a disappearing 9 patch, so there were a couple of already pieced 9 patches in the scrap bag. There was also a ton of already cut pieces for more 9 patches. So I decided to go with that and make a few more for another disappearing 9 patch!


Do you see the pattern? Basically for the disappearing 9 patch, you piece together 9 blocks, each of the same size. then cut it in half 2 times and turn them all around. So the pattern is a bit tricky to find! Such an easy apptern that almost doesn’t look like a pattern!


And for each one, I made a little doll or stuffie quilts to go ao;ng with it. This one used a little bit of the nine patch!


For the second one, I used all my scraps. Just total improv scrap piecing. Piecing until I had nothing left and actually had to reach into my fleece stash to finidh it off! I ended up making four little pieces and then put them all together and then kept going around to the back.


And of course, it needed a little one to go along with it!

And now I need to go back to getting some kids clothes together before vacation!!!
