Trail run quilt requests

Posted by grammyp (My Page) on

DH hopes to finish my new sewing tables today and we should be able to get them put in tonight or tomorrow. That means I can get back to sewing again. I am trying to get the trail run quilts done earlier this year so thought I would post and see if anyone can help me out. I will have to make 2 of each quilt so help is appreciated. Once again I am willing to repay fabric and postage with FQs, cash or whatever you need.

For the first set I will need 4 patches finished 4" (start with 2 1/2 in squares) of beige-brown. Going for scrappy so any colors from light tan to dark brown will do. They will be combined with greens 4x8 blocks to make this pattern.

For the next set I will need HSTs to finish 4 1/2 inches in greens and neutrals of beige to browns. Still going for scrappy so any colors as long as the green is darker than the neutral.

The last quilt will be a strip quilt. If you have some spare 2 1/2 strips in greens or neutral (once again beige to brown) I would appreciate a few of those, too. Not sure if I will make the jelly roll or something else.

Thanks for everything you have done to help with my other quilts. Looking forward to getting these started.

I'm in for HSTs in tan and green. I have lots of tan leftovers from my depression block quilt. I'll sew them up if you'll trim to size.

Bev-just to clarify - do you want the HST to measure 4 1/2" when we send them to you? Confusion on my part w/ the finish/unfinish interpretation - I don't want to send them too small.

When do you need these?

Bev, You can count me in for some beige and brown 4 patches...would a few batiks be ok, or do you prefer only cotton?

I'm searching through my scraps and will send you whatever I can to suit the quilts you are doing. I'm happy to help you out

Yes, Marsha, HSTs sent to me at 4 1/2. Larger is ok, I can trim. Batiks will be fine, I have some I am using. I hope to start on them in July but it will take me a while to get 6 done. There is no big hurry on them.

Thanks everyone.

I can send you some strips of green and will search through my stash of triangles to see if there's anything suitable. This will be fun!

I'm happy to help, but it will probably be another week or so before I'm able to send anything. I assume that will not be too late?

Marsha, thank you so much. The blocks and strips are perfect and I really love the turtle. He does look just like Sylacauga Bill.
