"T" is for Texas / Piecing Frenzy Segment #1

Moda came out with an amazing line of fabric that was just for Texas - I ooooooed and aahhhhed, but only bought a little because I wasn't sure what to make with it!! But I did make a small quilt for a friend that visited. But I had a few scraps left so put this small quilt (14" x 14") together and got it quilted while I've been "GLUED" to the TV watching Olympics!!!

"T" is for Texas

I used one of my Blue Bird flour sacks for the backing!

If you remember, I mentioned in an earlier post that I was on a piecing frenzy. Not only have I been piecing blocks for 5 projects (some of them SAL in blog land) I began piecing some baby/toddler quilts. I went through my scraps/stash and put together these simple quilt tops. Most of the "squares" were left over from other quilt projects, so I just added to those.

These three are for a dear friend's grandsons. I will straight line machine quilt these and get them in the mail sometime in the next month or so.

These two quilt tops are for our guild's "Wee Care Benevolence" program. My plan is to get them machine quilted next week. We'll see how it goes. 

Blessings Ya'll!!!!!

I love that Texas line and every time I see it, I am tempted...very tempted, but like you, I don't have a plan for it so I have no idea what to get. I love the T in yours - perfect! And, my! You HAVE been a busy stitcher! And the results are some awfully pretty quilts! Someone is in baby mode! :)

Your have been soooooo busy. Love your baby quilts, aren't they fun to make? And your Texas T is awesome.

Wow! You have been busy! And I love the feedsack on the back of that sweet little quilt! Perfect!

How appropriate your "T" block is, Doniene. I love it--even the backing is so cool! Good job!
Your baby quilts are my kind of baby quilt--traditional looking stuff. Wonderful!.
I would be happy to quilt a benevolence quilt or two for you. I am almost halfway through the donation quilt, and I haven't even had that much time to spend with it, so I am pleased with how it is going--even if my traditional looking quilting leaves something to be desired. I have much more fun on free-form quilting on baby quilts. : )

P.S. When I have been able to be home, I have been pretty glued to the Olympics, too. Even if I can't sit and watch, I have them on in the background. : )

What great projects - those children are going to be thrilled with their quilts. I can just picture the smiles on their faces! Your little Texas quilt is wonderful - Love the backing.
You are very generous!

Looks like you are in a "blue" quilt making mode. I like the feed sack back you selected for your quilt. I have one on the back of one of my quilts.

Love the little one, really love the back on it.
You did a great job on the other tops.

Kind regards,

That Texas fabric is adorable! I am impressed in a very big way with all that you have accomplished lately! Blessings to you!

I'm so happy with my blue bonnet Texas quilt you made for me. I display it always when i have blue flowers in my Texan pithier :-)
Hope next year the blue bonnet seed which I bought in Texas will bloom in my garden. That will be a highlight!

Wow Doniene, you have been so busy. I love them all but especially the little pink one. How sweet of you to share your talents blessing the lives of some little children.
