Comfort Quilt Tops, Dog Beds and More!

Working in my newly remodeled studio this winter has inspired me to complete  several unfinished quilt projects to donate for charitable purposes.  I transformed two large garbage bags of batting scraps from Anchorage Log Cabin Quilt members into 20 pet beds for Anchorage Friends of Pets.  Once again, rescued animals, the landfill and my studio benefit from these recycling efforts.

Then I dug into drawers of partially sewn quilt tops, accumulated leftover blocks and miscellaneous scraps to piece the following tops.  These tops will be passed onto our guild's Comfort Quilt Committee who will sew them into finished lap quilt donations for various local non-profit organizations.

The checkerboard strips were from a couple previous projects.

Several other block sets, and tops I didn't want to bother with were included in the donation pile but not photographed.  Final outcome, three drawers were emptied for future studio organization.
