Elgin Piecemakers Charity Quilts

The Elgin Piecemakers met last Thursday. The colours for our blocks for this month's charity quilt are brown and turquoise.   Here is my block, made the night before the meeting.

And here are all the blocks that the members of the guild made:

The turquoise just sparkles!  I can't wait to see how J and C put this one together!

We had a few quilts ready for binding. 

This one was donated by Nancy who used to belong to our guild but moved away a few years ago. 

The purple, turquoise and navy quilt from a couple of months ago is looking good!

The 30's print quilt is made from blocks donated a few months ago.  I love the border that was added to this quilt.

This week, Fran and I will be getting together to assemble the navy and yellow blocks from March.  I have picked out some sashing fabric from my stash and we already have the backing.  Fran thinks she has fabric for the cornerstones.  

You will notice that one person did not remember that we were to use navy and yellow instead of blue and was me!!!  I re-made my block in navy and yellow so now it fits in with the rest much better!

Here is a picture of the sashing fabric:

This striped fabric has been in my stash for ages and it is time to use it up!  It looks great with the navy and yellow blocks.

Next month's colours are yellow, gray and white.  I am quite sure I have a bit of fabric lying around that I can use for my block!


  1. What talented quilters! These are all stunning!

  2. How wonderful of you to make the charity blocks.
    The yellow and navy are beautiful.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. The blocks ya'll make are co cohesive. You would never guess they were made by different ones! They are all beautiful!
