Anonymously Donated Blocks I Assembled

Hi Gang,

Happy Spring / Easter / Passover. I wanted to stop by & share this Charity / Service project.

Someone donated these blocks to my Quilt Guild & I was asked to assemble them. So I wanted to do justice to these beautifully colored & wonderfully laid out blocks, take a look.

Some of these are Kaffe Fassett fabrics, a bit too bright for me. I auditioned yellow, orange, peach as the inner border, but they were just too loud for me. I hope / feel my choice of turquoise pulls it together well.

Sometimes charity work allows one to work on really special work by others, a great experience all around. I had great fun, learned a lot & feel I did great service to these blocks.

Hope you find really fun projects out there too.

Karen

Karen, I think the turquoise border is great! The green sashing and outer border go well, too.

Nice job! What will be its final use?

Karen,
I like your sashing and border choices. They do tone down the brights in the blocks (which I happen to like!!!). Nicely done. I am sure whoever receives the quilt will be thrilled.

You did a great job with the colors. I love the colors, but would never pick them for my home. I love when people post pictures and I get to see quilts I would never have dreamed of and yet they are wonderful.

I think it's stunning. Might never have thought of the turquoise and it really makes everything work.

Thanks for the compliments, I do so appreciate them. I forgot to mention this was paper pieced, the paper is still on the back, 'til I figure out how it'll be finished. Perhaps our Charity Stash will have a compatible backing & then maybe I'll ask for a volunteer long armer.

To quote Bev above

" I love when people post pictures and I get to see quilts I would never have dreamed of and yet they are wonderful."

That's pretty much how I feel, I really got a kick out of working in colors & patterns which I would have never have chosen on my own.

Initially, I'd picked an off-white to try as border & sashing, but it washed everything out & the group voted it out. Then I saw the light green.

I see now the pic is slightly blurry, hope these closer ups are sharper.

I think the maker here (I've since learned her name is Karla) has a great color sense. I really admire how she could make such beauifully blended & harmonious arrangments of such intense, bright colors.
