Quilts for Charity

Last February when we had our quilt retreat we asked everyone to bring a blue/white and green/white 9 patch so we could make a quilt for the Pregnancy Care Center.
The 9 patch blocks we started with...
They sat in my sewing room until May when Fenna from FABulous Home Sewn spear headed a sew-a-long for Pregnancy Care Centres.  It was a good push to get it done!  Laura, from Crafty Hour, and I worked on it together, making it a disappearing 9-patch quilt.
Over the next couple of months Laura made a few more quilts with fabric from Fat Quarter Shop that they generously donated.  Laura pieced and I quilted this cute Dr. Seuss one.
Check out the flickr pool and see the other sewing and quilts they made.  Still a few more to be made from all the fabric that was donated.  Hopefully we can do that this winter sometime.



  1. The quilt looks really good as a disappearing 9-patch and with the backing makes it look quite kid-friendly! Nice work ladies!

  2. love how it turned out! And, I still have a pile of fabric I have to work on too--hoping to make another month or two of intense, focused sewing for the PCC soon...probably in the new year sometime when things quiet down and the tiredness of pregnancy decreases a little :)

  3. It's amazing! I love how different a disappearing 9 patch looks from a regular 9 patch. So great!
