I seldom use Bonnie's exact colors because brights just don't do much for my antiques and primitive decor. I saw a Civil War fabric selection that was really pretty, so won't settle on anything until I pull some of those to look at first.
Our guild meeting was last week and it was the collection day for the quilts we are donating to the Baby Grace program. You may remember that I have been making crib quilts from the monthly Rainbow Scrap Challenge colors. Here is the selection that I took to the meeting.
I kept two of my favorites for any baby gifts I might need and gave my neighbor a choice for a grandchild she has coming in December. The parents never want to know the gender ahead of time, so she took a boy quilt and the only girl quilt I made. (Just couldn't resist the pink and green month.)
Here is the pile of quilts that the Baby Grace representative took with her. I think there were a few added after I took this pic.
As I remember, there were 41 donated. This program is sponsored by the Methodist Church, so they plan to hang them in the church for awhile before they are distributed. As you can imagine, I'm very proud of our members. We plan to continue supporting this program next year, so I will probably be making more, although I don't think I will attempt one a month next year. I have some UFO's that I should have finished this year, but they got pushed aside to make room for finishing the crib quilts.
I'm going to dig one of those out this week and see what I need to do to finish.
PS. Hooking up today with SoScrappySaturday on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
