Paradise 6 and 7

So, what do you do when you still have fabric left over from a quilt? Well, you make more quilts! Introducing two smaller versions of my Quarter Cut quiltParadise 6,

and Paradise 7,

both made with the fabric remaining from Quarter Cut 3
aka Paradise quilt #5.

This also means that all of the homespun fabric is out of the stash!!!

These two smaller quilts are around 44" x 53", perfect for a child or someone in a wheelchair. When the guild called out for quilts, they asked for a usable size, and these cover all bases for those in need.

Now, you may be asking, why didn't I just make another large lap quilt? It certainly looks like there was enough fabric. When it came right down to it, I really didn't want to cut up the big chunks of fabric that are in Paradise 7, plus they didn't sing well with the fabrics in Paradise 6.  Let's just say that Paradise 7 is totally, 100%, a utility quilt - and that's ok, cause when you're cold, you're cold, no matter how good the quilt looks.

And on both, I once again quilted the Paperchase pantograph, because it's just a very pleasant design, and not dense, allowing the quilt to puff. I don't know about you, but I like soft, slightly puffy quilts!

During this week, I hope to turn my attention to one more quilt for Paradise, either the Summer quilt in the Quilt Giving book, or one more Quarter Cut quilt. Either way, I'd like to do one more donation quilt. Please send good vibes my way to help me accomplish my goal!

Happy Quilting!
