Holy Guacamole Greek Cross Quilt

Holy Guacamole
September 2014

This is the Greek Cross design. The green was some fabric from Edith, and my guess is that it was from the 1970’s, when the color avocado was so trendy (yes, I remember!). The only new fabric was the blue edge binding.

Since starting my Love Hugs project, I estimate that I have used over 6200 yards of thread which is just over 3.5 miles!

I donated this quilt to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, via the Children’s Services Auxiliary of Ventura County, in September 2014.

Balancing Hippopotami

Balancing Hippopotami Greek Cross Quilt

Balancing Hippopotami
September 2014

Life is a balancing act, and some days can feel more like a balancing hippopotami act!

This is Shar Jorgenson’s Crazy Quilt design. In the bottom right corner (shown in detail in upper right corner) is the pretty crocheted edging off of one of Granny’s hankies. I bound the top to the polka dot fleece backing by strategically tacking a ‘bow’ on each hippo’s head.

The majority of the fabrics used were leftovers from the Moms and Granny, while the star of the quilt – the hippos – was a new fabric.

The design for Madagascar Foxtrot is based off of a basic 9-patch quilt. This one is a true patchwork quilt as I used scraps that were left from these prior Love Hugs quilts – Check This!, Shooting Star and Green Tetons. And, I still have more of these fabrics!
