Trail run quilt time

Posted by grammyp (My Page) on

I am starting earlier on my trail run quilts this year. The run is the middle of Oct, but I have started working on patterns. Once again I will be doing 6 quilts for male and female winners of each of the 3 races. I think I will do simpler ones this year.

For the 5K winners a jelly roll quilt something like the ones from last year:

For the 10K a "sticks and stones" quilt like this, but in greens and creams:

And for the half marathon, a depression block in greens and creams:

Of course, Sylacauga Bill (the turtle) would be somewhere on each one.

What do yall think? These will be so much easier than the pine tree from last year.

Great choices ~ let us know if you want some help!
I enjoyed making & sending you my little contribution last year of green and cream HST's .

Look at this cool Black & white and green quilt I just saw.
You could put a turtle in place of the circles.

Fantastic. I rarely commit to more than one and I'm behind on that one now!

I fell in love with the turtle too!!! Beverly must never sleep with all of the gorgeous quilts she makes.

Marsha, I was going to take a quick look at the pattern, and there are 32 pages of FREE projects!! I love the green with envy pattern.
