I’ve been making men’s donation quilts for a local nursing home. When cleaning up my studio and reorganizing I came across these leftover Connecting Threads fabrics, most are from this quilt and this quilt and thought I should have enough for a couple of lap quilts for the men.
Many of the pieces were already sewn in strips at 5″ wide so I just cut more pieces 5″ wide by whatever width to add to my possibilities. The fabrics not wide enough for 5 ” were cut to 2 1/2″. Then it was a matter of sewing them together.
Since they were lap sized and ranged in size from 36″ x 40″ I loaded a wide backing on the long arm and placed them 2 side by side in 2 rows (4 quilts).
Here’s a close-up of the quilting. I call it my “square meander.”
My 2 quilts doubled into 4 quilts:
