Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

Under the sea! This one deserved a more water-like meander. Maybe not wavy enough. Pieced by Mary. 
Flower power! Such a fun scrappy quilt. Pieced by Trudy.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I pieced this little four-patch quilt and paired it with a coordinating backing. 
A fun print that should make someone very happy. 
This one was pieced by another member of Annapolis Quilts 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.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

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.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

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.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

The last time I dropped off quilts with Annapolis Quilts for Kids it seems I missed a bag full of little quilts. I combined those with the few I made and those I picked up last time. That means I dropped off 20 little quilts ready for binding. I picked up eight more little tops to quilt up for next month. It's great to be working with Quilts for Kids again.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I almost failed to get this little quilt to fit on my chosen backing fabric. That's less than one inch before the leader on the frame. So close. Too close. 
Learn more about how I made this Little Scrappy Trips in this post
These big blocks are so great for little quilts. 
The scrappy border makes this one fun, too.

Big Blocks Make Great Quilts from Becca's Crazy Projects

I have some larger pieces of fabric leftover from quilt backings. Some of these are a couple inches wide, some are larger. I also have a big bag full of narrow strips. I made some strip units and some of the larger pieces to make these really simple blocks.
Each block finishes at 17" by 17" so you don't need very many to make a little quilt. Heck, you don't need very many to make a large quilt.
I added a 2.5" border to tie it all together. This one was relatively structured. I made two identical ...

Little Scrappy Trips from Becca's Crazy Projects

I used Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trips free tutorial to make some blocks. I used a bunch of 2.5" strips cut from leftover quilt backing. Every strip was unique.
I used a single dark strip on the long diagonal. Each block finishes at 12" by 12". 
I played with block placement a little until I had a layout I liked. Big blocks means I didn't need many. 
Then I sewed the nine blocks together and added a border. I think I spent more time making sure I had 54 different fabrics than I spent piecing it together. Overall ...

I love these stripes and dots!
So much movement from these fabrics.
How cute is this fabric? 
Mary, a quilter who works with Annapolis Quilts for Kids, pieced this wonderful quilt. Very precise piecing and such a fun finish.

Four-Patch Fun from Becca's Crazy Projects

This is one of those projects that just sort of happens. I had this cute tweety bird fabric, but not a bunch, and some 2.5" strips in coordinating colors. Seemed a perfect combination. I paired up the blues with a strip of yellow and a strip of pink and made a bunch of little four-patch units. 
Then I added a single 3" border to frame it. I want to try this with a different background print so expect to see at least one more of these sometime soon. This was made with leftovers from backings for charity quilts. I ...

It's great to be back to working on charity quilts.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

 
On Saturday Annapolis Quilts for Kids was available to meet up and exchange finished quilts and pick up more. I dropped off four finished quilts and grabbed these six finished tops to quilt up. 
Sunday I cleaned the piles of stuff of my long arm frame, loaded a quilt and got it quilted. 
Then I loaded another one. It was nice to get back to charity quilting after so long. I'll work through the rest over the next few weeks. Have you found your quilting groove again?

Color by Number not once but twice from Sew Sunshine


I recently came across Caroline over at Sew Can She making another of her Color by Number quilts. This time she is focusing on the quilting doing a qal week by week. I was looking for more kid sized easy quilts to make for my project Quilts for Kids. Her color by number is a really simple strip quilt to make. I did have to adjust the size of the strip block to make a smaller sized quilt but the concept is still the same. 
When you read the directions (by the way the pattern is free on her page ...

Next Up baby quilt featuring charming farm fabric from Carried Away Quilting


When I saw Stacy Iest Hsu’s newest fabric collection, On the Farm, I just had to sew up a baby quilt. The fabric is darling, with vibrant colors and charming farmyard scenes. In keeping with the country theme, I paired this collection with Moda’s Indigo Chambray and decided to use my Next Up charm pack pattern. The result is a cheerful baby quilt that is gender neutral and hay bales of fun.


Making children’s quilts is so rewarding. For me, they bring back special memories of my kids when they were little. This particular quilt reminds me ...

A Finished Quilt from ... Cat Patches

It was kind of a busy day yesterday. I spent the morning in the garden. As I was taking my walk around, I found these two on squirrel watch in their catio.



My first stop was to check the fruit trees. I've been watching the cherries like a hawk...or a raccoon...or a squirrel. I'm not sure who's responsible for cleaning the tree, whether it's the mammals or the birds. Either way, they are still there. Kind of amazing. We're going to be gone next week, and I've worried about these ripening while ...
