Charity Quilts 27, 28, 29 & 30 of 52 πŸ’ + Road Trip Day 5

I'm making 52 quilts in 2018 for Jack's Basket, where precious babies with Down syndrome are celebrated. Let me introduce you to quilts 27 through 30!

Quilt number 27 is quilted with "White Caps":


This pattern calls for 4 fat quarters, and as my friend says, "Who doesn't have 4 fat quarters?!" Here are the four fat quarters I used in baby quilt number 27:

The backing is from IKEA:

I loaded and quilted three quilts at once, side-by-side, on my longarm this month, quilt numbers 28, 29 and 30. They all have the same backing and are all quilted with "Egg Carton":

Quilt number 28:



Quilt number 29:



Quilt number 30:



The quilt pattern I'm using is "Simple Gifts" from the mini book, Fat Quarter Love, by Modern Quilt Studio.

Check out the charity quilt link-up at Slice of Pi Quilts on the last day of each month in 2018. Be sure to link up any charity projects you've been working on this month.

And here is Day 5 of our California road trip; video produced by our DD2:
