Sewing for Kids...again from Sew Sunshine

After my sew day with my sisters a few weeks ago I have been on a mission to go through my fabrics and put in one place all the kids fabrics I have been accumulating.  I discovered fabrics everywhere...ha surprising not!  
It happened that the leader of our local quilts for kids had a medical issue come up before their sew day so I offered to make some kits with my fabric to help out. 
I pulled out enough fabric to make several kits...no surprise there.  When I was finished with the kits I found I had some ...

I love quilts made with these different fabrics. A great eye-spy quilt pieced by Mary. 
I pieced and quilted this one. I used a fun star pantograph. I'm getting comfortable with the Innova long arm and loving the robotic quilting. I can do other things while checking up on the machine from time-to-time.

Sometimes You Rip from Becca's Crazy Projects

 
Never let it be said that I don't make mistakes. I do. Sometimes they are pretty spectacular. This is what happens when I fail to check the tension before quilting. That's right. I quilted an entire quilt before figuring out the tension was unsatisfactory. So unsatisfactory I had to rip it all out. The ripping wasn't that awful. The tension was so bad I could pull out 6-8" pieces of bobbin thread at a time. 
When that was done, I loaded it back onto the frame and quilted it again. This time with correct tension. I think ...

This top was pieced by Janet. 

I had to piece a backing for this quilt pieced by another member of  Annapolis Quilts for Kids. I don't normally do this as these little quilts are usually narrower than a single cut of 42-44" wide quilting cotton. 
I challenged myself to match the print as best I could. It isn't perfect but you do have to look for it to find it. 
A cute little quilt once I hand it over for binding.

This quilt, pieced by Mary, was a wonderful surprise. I made those really wonky, scrappy blocks with scraps from another project. It was great to see them in a quilt. 

Mary also pieced this wonderful scrappy quilt. So many different fabrics in this one.

Saturday the Annapolis Quilts for Kids had a social sewing event and I dropped off ten quilts ready for binding. I picked up several more tops ready for quilting and a roll of batting. They like to keep me busy. Afterwards I came home and did some quilting. I pieced this big-block quilt. 
The simple 17" by 17" blocks are so different in each quilt. Such fun to use up scraps from quilt backings into usable little quilts. Once the four blocks are joined and the border added, the quilt finishes around 38" by 38". A great size for kids ...

Whoops! from Becca's Crazy Projects

Sometimes things get in the way. I seem to have missed the regular Wednesday post so this one is backdated. Sorry.
Here is a picture of another scrappy charity quilt top I pieced last week. Maybe I'll be more productive next week. 

As always, following my Instagram (@beccascrazyprojects) will get you more often updates on what I'm working on. Sometimes things that don't even make it to the blog.

I made this little quilt top months ago. Finally got it quilted this past weekend. 
This one was made by Trudy. I love how the border print makes the borders fun. 
I used this ribbon meander. I think I'll try to use this one more often. I'll drop these off with Annapolis Quilts for Kids later this month.

My goal with working with Annapolis Quilts for Kids is to quilt at least one little quilt every week. Sometimes I meet that goal, sometimes I exceed it.
This past weekend I quilted two. I'm playing catch up this year because we haven't been meeting. Now that I'm able to pick up finished tops I'm stitching right along.
