Doing Good

I am really enjoying making these 16 patch/postage stamp blocks for the BAMQG Charity Quilt project.The beneficiary of our quilts is the Lucille Packard NICU. Apparently, they use the quilts (and other kinds of blankets) to cover the incubators and keep out the light. Each baby who leaves receives a quilt or afghan or other kind of blanket to take home.

I take as many kits, which consist of 16 2.5″ squares, as I want and sew them together into 16 patch blocks. Last time I only took one, but this time I took 4, which was all the red kits available.

They made great leaders and enders and I really was able to put the blocks together very quickly.

  1. I love the red and white…very cute and cheery. I do the leaders and enders thing but need a new stack of pieces. I think I will do this. First I need to get a good white. You use Kona snow, right?

    1. I spoke with the charity people who said that any white is fine. The white they have been using is a really bright white and I think Kona snow is a bit creamier. I plan to cut up some of the white-on-whites I have laying around and use those. You really could use any color background and have a very nice quilt. The blocks go very fast.
