Three quilts and a million pieces

I'm showing off two quilts for the price of one today.
In February, I asked my local quilting friends to put together
6 inch blocks from their blue, green and neutral strings


We planned to make one charity quilt measuring 60 by 80
but there was more than enough for two.

The second one measures 57 inches square

The bigger one has an inner border made from only dark blue fabrics.

My guild friend Karen was sick on the day we put the quilt together,
so she made her own from blue, green, and yellow strips
using the same inner border idea.

Those quilts have turned out so well. Each a little different. Nice that so many contributed. Keep up the good work!
