Boy's Charity quilts 7 and 8

I have to share a very funny and serendipitous event with you all.  I've been sewing madly on the quilts for our charity group, which are mostly quilts for boys.  I picked up a couple of bags of fabric to use and divided it all up in piles, which I blogged about a few weeks ago.

I pulled out one of the piles today and discovered that the zebra print fabric was originally my old kitchen curtains!  I moved 4 years ago and donated the fabric (I thought I gave it to Goodwill, but I must have put it on the free table at the guild meeting).   When I pulled it out to iron and cut it into squares, I saw that there were seams at the top and bottom.  Then, whoosh!  It hit me that these were my old curtains.  No wonder I pulled that fabric back out of the stash to go with the other fabrics.  I love animal print fabric!

Well, of course I love the look of these two quilts, which are quilts #7 and #8.

Boy's Charity Quilt #8, 47" x 57"

I hope you like them.  And I hope they will make somebody really happy!


  1. I'm sure all the little boys who receive these quilts will feel the love that went into creating them!

  2. The story about the animal print just made me smile and giggle! Serendipity as its best for sure! I like the wonky blocks. These will be special quilts to some deserving boys!
