Ft. Thomas Group Session Recaps

July 2020 Session

Hello! After a successful, although toasty, parking lot session last week, I can finally show you what our group (some of them who were able to make it) have been up to! There were 62 quilts turned in, so much fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s start with some quilts made with simple squares:

Some more blocks with strips:

Ten inch blocks and 4 patches:

From big blocks to little blocks, these use 2.5″ blocks:

Here’s some fat quarter friendly bento boxes:

These quilts used panels in a variety of ways:

These quilts are a way to use up those charm packs and will be a new kit:

Virginia turned in some fun quilts using up her stash:

Mom had a blast painting these little monsters with permanent fabric paint:

I played a bit with a new pattern:

I also played with a new kit idea making a quilt that doubled as a checkerboard. Here is the quilt and I made a washable checker pieces and a cotton bag that can be thrown in the wash too:

We had some lovely orphan blocks that were turned in to some CQs:

Some more orphan blocks came in from some amazing quilters around the world who answered my “quilty wishes” on Instagram. I received so many that I lost track of who gave me what to tag everyone. It was really awesome to get such support!!

There was one other donation that was super cool! This came from a woman lucky enough to live in Waynesville, OH, near Fabric Shack! This is a finished quilt that measures 60″ x 60″. It’s too big to be a comfort quilt, but I reached out to the House and they were thrilled with the beautiful quilt donation and will be including it in the Red Tie Gala fundraiser. The donor was thrilled her scrappy dresden was thought of so highly and will still be used for RMH. I took two pics since the sun was being a little finicky.

I hope you made it to the end to see all these wonderful quilts. Our parking lot session went well and we’ll likely have another one in a month or so.

Keep making those quilts! We’ll be able to deliver them to the House soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. You was wanting fleece for the July meeting. I could not make it. But I have a lot of fleece I am not going to use. If you want it, when is the next meeting, or could I meet with you somewhere to deliver it.
