Charity Quilts 35, 36, 37, 38 & 39 of 52 💝

I'm making 52 quilts in 2018 for Jack's Basket, where babies with Down syndrome are celebrated. 🎉 Check out their Instagram for a lot of cute baby pictures.

Since there is 52 Saturdays in 2018, each month I'm making the same number of quilts as there are Saturdays. This month I've made 5:

Since I can't quilt 5 at a time on my longarm, I quilted one by itself first, number 35:

If you have a longarm and use pantographs, this is a free one called Argyle, from Urban Elementz:

Then I did the quilting on the next 4 all at once, using one of my favorites, Figure 8s:

Number 36:

Number 37:

Here's the backing on these four:

Number 38:

Number 39:

And here they are all spread out on my longarm:

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.

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. These quilts are so cute. Thanks for being a blessing to Jack's Basket and the Down syndrome community.

  2. The baby quilts are darling, Nancy! I know they’ll be appreciated.

  3. Wow, such productivity!! Your quilts colors are so bright and cheerful, sure to bring a smile.

  4. I never get tired of seeing this pattern. You choose so many bright, happy colors. Can you make them in your sleep by now? Haha!

  5. I always look forward to seeing what color and prints you will use next!

  6. Another great batch! I love that you've committed to one a week. So generous! :)

  7. Thanks for sharing! Very lovely! How big is the quilt? Is it at least 36 inches square? I am the Project Linus chapter coordinator in Northern Virginia and this pattern looks perfect as quilts for NICU babies at local hospitals.

    1. Thank you, Annabelle! You are a noreply-comment, so I will answer you here. These quilts finish 30" X 36".

  8. I love these quilts and am in love with the Figure 8 or Wishbone pattern. I need to finish my Bible quilt soon because I know what quilt pattern I want (wink!)

  9. WONDERFUL quilts! Louise makes for this charity too. I like the five at a time too! Nancy, I have a question about your blog set up: how did you get the photo as the header? I've switched to the Simple theme and can't seem to find how I customize it (I've gone into the Customize settings) Thx!

  10. Oh my, what a fabulous lady you are. Love, love, love all these quilts. Such a beautiful charity you are stitching for. I must say I love the window where you quilt. It must be heaven looking at the view outside.

  11. I am so impressed with how ell you are keeping up with your goals. They look great hanging over the long arm.

  12. Great quilts, especially when you can line them up on the frame and quilt all of them at once!

  13. What a wonderful charity project! Your quilts are all beautiful and I adore that backing fabric. Thanks for linking to TGIFF :)

  14. WOW I'm always so impressed with how many quilts you finish! Do you machine bind all of the quilts? I feel like you finish them faster than it would take me to hand bind one of them!

  15. That's a wonderful cause, and it's great to see these new additions going out.
