2016 Giving Committee- Fade to Black and Blue Trimmed Cabin

In addition to the star blocks that went to make the First Star I See quilt, we also inherited lots of black and white print fabric when we stepped in as SeaMQG Giving Committee chairs. It had been donated the year before by guild members, so we definitely wanted to use it!

We chose an Improv Quarter Log Cabin tutorial, and asked for 12 1/2″ square blocks made with the black and white prints and a true white solid. We encouraged the makers to give their blocks a little wonk when they squared them up.

With all of the blocks received back, we were able to make two quilts! The larger one we like to call Fade to Black! Debbie sewed the larger top together, which Arlene DeBuck kindly quilted with a delightful variety of quilting motifs.

Then there were enough blocks left to make a baby-sized quilt, which we like to call Blue Trimmed Cabin. Debbie put this one together also, quilted it up, and passed it on to Yeechi Chen to bind. Yeechi even added a sweet aqua flange to this little quilt.

Both of these quilts will be donated to Nurse-Family Partnership.

  1. Thank you Louise, Debbie, Arlene and Yeechi for pulling together the blocks created by our members. You do a lot of extra work on behalf of our guild, which allows us to give wonderful quilts to those in need of comfort. Not only do you Do Good Stitches, you do wonderful, kind and loving stitches.
