It is all about charity quilts

I got my quilt kit finished for my favorite shop owner's favorite charity.  Someone had donated all this purple batik.  Can't go wrong with batik for a quilt for a young person.  I used the "Apron Strings" pattern and lots of 2.5" strips.

Various pieces of purple

Before that I finished a quilt using a charm pack of "Little Black Dress" by Moda that I won at a meet and greet with the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild.  I had various neutral solids that I used along with the "Seashell" pattern by Villa Rose Designs.  

Lastly, I finished up some butterfly blocks for our quilt guild's charity quilt for this month.

I am behind on Block Swap Adventure.  I was on vacation, then out-of-town for business.  My swap partner for September and October both want thirties reproduction fabric.  No scraps of that in my scrap pile so I had to head to the quilt shop to buy some.  That is probably the only kind of fabric that I don't have any of in my stash.

We have our grandson for the weekend so I probably will not get much done until Monday.
