A Trio of Heart Builder Quilts

This week I have not one, not two, but ... three finished quilts to show! I was sent 3 quilt tops from Stash Builder Box's Heart Builders and I got to finish them. (I didn't have to piece these. Whew!)

The first quilt made me smile as soon as I opened it up. Monkeys! It was all fussy-cut, and just far too cute. I did an allover swirl hook design but quilted all the monkey blocks differently to make them stand out.

The second quilt was a red/white/blue quilt, so I did an allover swirl / paisley design.

And last but not least, the final quilt was made of chevrons, sashings, and cornerstones. I did some custom quilting for this, putting different fillers in each chevron and tying all the sashings together with a square chain.

My oldest child retired her crib a few months ago, and I knew just what to do with one of the railings ... doesn't it make a nice quilt rack? So officially ... here's the rack of quilts! (Included is Pixel Maze which I posted about last week.)

And now for the toughest part of charity quilting ... finding shipping boxes to fit them in!

  1. I love your quilt rack and it's too bad these quilts can't stay. Are you sure you're not ready to go primetime? Your quilting just makes these quilts so special and I hope the recipients know how wonderful it is to receive such a beautiful quilt.

  2. Hi Liz, I really like the quilting you did. The quilting on the sashing and cornerstones of the chevron quilt is particularly effective!

  3. I seriously "heart" the monkey quilt. I used some of that exact fabric for a baby quilt for my boss's daughter. She loved it!

  4. Oh, I love that crib rail turned quilt holder! My little guy is using his crib as a toddler bed at the moment but when he moves up, I just might break his crib apart!

  5. I like all of those quilts, great job finishing!

  6. Gorgeous quilting on these sweet quilts! And, a clever quilt rack too!

  7. Lovely finishes! Thanks for being a Heart Builder quilter.

  8. Your quilting is the perfect finish for those lovely quilts. Love the crib rail idea for displaying them. And, yes, finding the right box is the hard part. It's usually the one you just threw away!
