Charity Challenge – August


Here is my finished Cobblestones quilt from July.  Doesn’t the dappled sunlight make it look pretty?  I had thought I might need to use yardage for the background, but I had lots of leftover scraps of Kona Snow, so I didn’t – bonus! I quilted it with horizontal lines following the middle of the four patches and then the middle of each square in the four patch.

I made this quilt while on retreat with the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild – we had such a great time!  One little problem was that I forgot the walking foot for my travel machine. Using the regular foot worked out pretty well, but the quilting isn’t as smooth as I would have liked.


My August Charity Challenge quilt is called – August!  I wanted to use a sunny blue and yellow color scheme and all I could think of was the blue sky and water and yellow sunshine of August vacations.  This is a fun, fast strippy quilt and I’m looking forward to digging through my stash for the fabrics.  These are all 2 1/2″ strips, so if you have a jelly roll or roll up hanging around, that would be a quick way to make this quilt.  You can get the PDF pattern here.

I hope you are enjoying following along with my Charity Challenge!  How are your projects coming along?
