Petal Plate Party - H2H Charity Quilt Challenge 2014

is hosting
the
Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.
 
 
"Petal Plate Party"
is my second contribution
for 2014.
 

With a bunch of solid Kona strips in a box,



as my inspiration to sew the quilt top.
 
 
Once all the strips were sewn together, it was an odd size.
I cut it in half to make two lap quilts.
This is the second one.
 
 
The first one, "Sunshine Travels" was blogged here.
Both quilts are 51" x 63"
Nice cuddle up throws.
 
 
I added Dresden to make it more pleasing to me.
 
 
(I really hated the way it looked before the green Dresden)
 
Now it's a bright, happy quilt
sent to put a party in some one's life.
 
 
I quilted this one with stipple in the background and zigzag swirl in the Dresden centers.
 
I am on the last hours of deadline here, but I made my goal of 2 quilts this year.
Now I need to decide which of the 3 charities will receive these.
 
Confessions Of A Fabric Addict
 
If you would like to see all of the quilts being donated, you can see them
at the Big Reveal.
 
 
 
 
Have a great weekend,

Carla I've made several of those jelly roll quilts but, duh, I never thought of appliqueing anything on them! No I've got ideas in my head. I want to make my three daughters a Christmas one so I could do trees, or snowmen, or Santas or ornaments.... :) I might be a little carried away! blessings, marlene

Wow, love them both. I really liked the yellow, but green is my favorite and this one is wonderful. What a great way to dress up a jelly roll quilt. Love it.

Carla said...

Just lovely. They will be much appreciated

Your quilts will bring a happy smile to somebody for sure ! I've never wanted to make a jellyroll quilt until now. Adding the applique to them was a SUPER idea !

I have made a few jelly roll quilts but I never thought of adding appliqué to them. I love this idea. These quilts will bring lots of comfort. They are very pretty.

I just love to see how different jelly rolls make up into a quilt. I love this pattern. It's fun to do with 2-1/2 " strip scraps too, especially batiks. Your appliqué project really makes the strip top unique. Thank you for sharing.
