Scrappy String Pinwheel {Bloggers' Quilt Festival Fall 2015}

Another year, and another quilt market that I'm not at! Stinks doesn't it?  Fortunately, for all of us who can't go to market and see all the eye candy in person Amy run the twice annual Bloggers' Quilt Festival!


The first quilt I am showing off this Fall is a string-y scrap quilt from back in the Spring.  I actually featured the sister quilt to this one in the last Bloggers' Quilt Festival!  I love how versatile string scraps can be.  These two different quilts were both made using this tutorial for 60 degree string triangles.


This scrappy quilt was donated to Covered in Love, which provides quilts of comfort to the families of patients who pass away in the hospital where I work.  I was able to deliver one of these quilts personally yesterday, and these small acts of kindness do make a difference .


If you want to get involved with Covered in Love you can find details on the main page.


I am entering this quilt in the Scrap Quilt category of festival. Check out my other entry in the Large Quilt category here.

  1. I love your unusual borders and the yellow fabric is so cheery. I'm sure the family that receives this quilt will love it. What a special program. Although different, I remember when my son was an infant and was in the hospital he was given a tiny quilt and I remember how encouraging that was to me.
