Quilts For Vets of Wayne County, TN

Here are quilts # 24 and # 25 and they are completely finished which includes being washed and dried!!!  I think we could have 11 quilts waiting to be quilted and bound. We are doing really well.

This quilt pattern is called Tortilla Strips by Atkinson Designs. I can't remember where I first saw this pattern and I realized it would be perfect for the bits of leftover strips from other quilts. Only hope there will be a Korean Vet who loves the modern look of this one

I really like that the star points are only around the center part of the blocks. Something a bit different. These quilts were a group effort - I pieced them, Anne quilted them and Rubye did the bindings.

If the quilts look wonky it is because I have blocks pinned underneath to the wall so they are making the quilt poof out a bit.

We had a group sew day and 6 ladies showed up to help piece a quilt top.

They sewed for three hours and made 56 blocks

When I cut out the pieces I made the last round one inch bigger than needed so I could square up the blocks all to the same size. I did get it made into a top and it is in the pile waiting to be quilted.
