Bar quilt using flying geese blocks with a cute plaid for the spacers.

 

This quilt uses simple red, white and blue rectangles which are set off center in a contrasting fabric.  The blocks are all the same size but set  twisting about to create images that dance your eyes across the quilt.   Overall quilting pattern.

 

Fun for a child.  A printed Marmaduke fabric provides colors and fun. Border colors are pulled from the center.  Machine quilting gives the quilter practice on chains and cornering.

 

A specialized form of chinese coins - stacks of square or rectangles in the bar quilt format.  Lovely in golds and blues!

One of our favorite kits - this quilt makes up quickly with a cutter feeding you the squares.  Great way to use children's prints too. Overall meandering for the quilting.

Another great blue and red quilt. Do you know the block name?  It reminds me of the Jacob's ladder but I know that isn't right!!!
Remember that kit I mentioned above?  This is another one that we put together in a few hours to send to the folks in Tuscaloosa after the horrible twister did so much destruction. 
This one is made from blocks donated by one of our members.  Great fun - the inside sashing is a three way strip with nine patch corner stones.  By using a single strip on the outside, it makes the blocks look more complicated than they are.  The colors in the sashing and borders helped this very different colored blocks all work together - like all of us working to help families in Tuscaloosa.
Kris made this one for a soldier through the operation mend project at UCLA. It's called lucky stars.
Quilted for a new baby!  Cute with all the flying geese - using the delightful 30's prints.
Here's another of our kits - wonderful colors to brighten someone's life.
A really simple design - two rectangles to make a square with contrast fabrics - then toss them together.  Lots of movement and love.  Thanks for a fun one Lola!  This is the first of many we sent to Tuscaloosa. 
Barbara put all these chinese lanterns a quilt for something to pass on a little love and warmth to our sisters and brothers in Tuscaloosa.
This quilt was donated for community service - but oh what fun!  The colors will brighten any room - how is it made?  The block is actually a rectangle with a square attached - they are alternated down and lined up across.  WOW!
The block is simple. A square with two rectangles sewn to one side - toss them on a wall and look out!
This is a tossed nine patch.  Create a nine patch, then cut in four with both a vertical and horizontal cut.  Toss and put back together in random format. If you look, you can actually see that there are blocks or groups of four with the print fabrics in each set.
This is another of Lola's efforts.  She has made a quarter of a log cabin using light/dark sides.  Fun when assembled.  This one has diagonals of the two values running through.
Someone had fun... Wild fabrics and a mix of two blocks, using up strips and squares in the scrap bag.
The simple heart block with two rectangles and a few cheater corners for the triangles.  The colors are repeated in the border to complement the hearts.
We know we may not have shown them all, but here is the pile of completed quilts.  We sent dozens and dozens to Tuscaloosa for the tornado victims through a church so we knew they would get to the ones who needed them.
