Sweet and Simple

Do you need a quick charity or gift quilt? How about Framed Four Patches?

I obtained the pattern idea for this quilt from my friend, Linda, who heads the charity quilt committee for her guild.

Strip-piecing the Four Patches with 4″ x WOF strips was a breeze. And framing them with 2 1/2″ wide strips was equally painless.

I made 15 blocks of each coloration and joined them together in a 5 x 6 grid. I plan to gift this quilt to our local Fisher House, which provides meals and accomodations for injured soldiers and their families while the soldiers undergo treatment.

Since “celebrate” is my word for the year, in February I’ll celebrate this sweet and simple gift and the warmth it will provide to someone who needs a hug and encouragement!

Thanks for the great idea for a charity quilt. I donated several quilts to a local shelter last year and plan to do the same this year. It sure is a good way to use up some stash that has been aging for too long.

Great quilt, Aby! Can you bring it to DOQ in March? I would love to add the pattern to our donation quilts. Thanks again!
