Giveaways Quilts

Project Smile Hugs & Kisses Quilt Top & Scrap Winner

What looked like this last Wednesday:

is now a completed quilt top. 

The fabrics are all Art Gallery Fabrics and were sent to me by Pat Bravo herself from her amazing scraps and I made it to benefit Project Linus.  I used my Go! Baby to cut the scrap squares into 5″ and 2.5″ squares.  I rotary cut the white 3″ squares(these became the skinny white strips).  And I put my sister Monica and her boyfriend to work on Thanksgiving  marking diagonal lines on the reverse of the smaller squares & my mom did a bit of the sewing on Thursday as well.  I finished up the sewing/pressing/cutting on Friday and Saturday & assembled the quilt yesterday.

When I originally received Pat’s scraps I divided them into 3 different color stories but in the end I decided to use them altogether in a colorful scrap quilt.  For those of you unfamiliar with Project Linus, it’s a charity organization that donates quilts/blankets to children in hospitals.  This quilt is sure to brighten up any hospital room.

When I was designing this quilt I decided to go with X’s & O’s because I wanted a Hugs & Kisses Quilt–I think this fits the bill perfectly.

  • Great looking quilt… Great for scraps…. How wide is the white strip… I know you say 3″ but then how narrow do you cut the strips?

    • Thanks!–I just posted a block tutorial on the next post up. =)
