Charity Organization:  Pine Ridge Native American Reservation, South Dakota

JANUARY, 2012 - "Child"-size Sampler Style Quilt

Our first quilt for the Pine Ridge Reservation for 2012 will be for a child.  Make your favorite 9" finished block (9 1/2" UNfinished) in the complementary colors of blues and oranges.  Your fabrics can be solids, tone-on-tones, small prints - really, any fabric in these colors!  You can find several 9" finished block patterns here, just scroll down a bit till you find Marcia's 9" block category.

Quilters, let's try to have our blocks, border or binding strips or fabrics, batting and backing fabrics to our Piecer or Quilter no later than JANUARY 20th so that we can get this quilt completed and on its way to Pine Ridge no later than the end of February (hopefully sooner!).

The top for this quilt will have a layout of 5 blocks across x 6 rows, a 1" finished inner border and a 4" finished outer border.  The quilt size will be approximately 55x64".

To make this Sampler Style Child-size quilt, we will need the following:

Thirty 9" finished (9 1/2" UNfinished) blocks - your choice of block pattern!
PLEASE make sure your blocks measure this as it makes the Piecer’s job soooo much easier! Thank you!!!

Six (6) strips 1 1/2" x WOF in Orange for the narrow inner border (or 1/3 yard fabric):  Midge W.

Six (6) strips 4 1/2" x WOF in Blue for the wide outer border (or 1 yard fabric):  Midge W.

Seven (7) strips 2 1/4" x WOF in Orange for the binding (or 1/2 yard fabric):  Midge W.

*It would be so wonderful (but not necessary) if the same person could send the fabric for the inner border and the binding so these would match!*

Quilters, if possible, please send a dollar or two to help with the postage costs incurred by our Quilter who will send the completed quilt to Pine Ridge Native American Reservation in South Dakota!!  This is not mandatory - the Quilt and Needle does not want anyone to feel that they have to contribute $$ to sign up to make blocks or contribute border/binding strips or fabrics for our charity projects.  Ultimately, the Piecer is responsible for the postage expense incurred in mailing the top to the Quilter and the Quilter is responsible for the postage expense incurred in mailing to Pine Ridge so please keep this in mind when signing up to piece or quilt the tops for these charity projects.

Batting 63 x 72” (or $$ for Quilter to purchase batting):

Backing Fabric 63 x 72” or 3 ½ yards (or $$ for quilter to purchase fabric):  Denise
(Quilters, please remember it is perfectly acceptable if two or more want to go in together to purchase the backing fabric as this can sometimes be the most expensive part of the quilt.)

Label: Cindy/Jess

Piecer:   Midge W.

Quilter:   Sandy

OK, QUILTERS, LET THE SIGN-UPS BEGIN!!!

Tomorrow I'll dig through the stash to see if I have any orange.  Know I have lots of blue.  If I've got orange I'll sign up for several blocks.

Thanks Cindy for getting us started off.  Thanks too Denise, Midge, and Nola!  This little quilt will be very colorful!  I'll quilt this one if no one else wants to do it.

OK - you can put me down for 4 blocks to start.  We'll see how much fabric I have left, and how many more blocks you need - If necessary I can probably make a few more.

Was on my way to JoAnn's this evening and we were having the most gorgeous blue and orange sunset ;  I figured that was an encouragement to make some blocks for this quilt.  So how about putting me down for 4?

Got my blocks done....  I have a question... if we had needed a neutral background color... should it have been white?  creaam?????   I was able to only use 2 colors... but someone else may need to know.....

I'll get these off in the mail to Midge this week along with some postage $$$$ .

And.... I have 3 yards of an orange on orange check..... do we want to use it as part of the back?  I could piece it with something else.....  or we could wait to see if someone else wants to donate a backing....  near the top of the pile of new fabric I bought this week on the Jan. Thread....  take a peak and let me know.....

Denise, fabulous blocks!  Thank you.  As for background fabric, I think just an orange / blue quilt will be wonderful.  There are many "shades" of each so block makers can choose whichever they'd like to use.  I think your orange check would be perfect on the back!  IMHO

Cindy, I could make 2 or more blocks also.

denise, i'm with sandy on this one.  there are many shades/values of blues and oranges - y'all have fun and be creative, stretch those quilting skills

your orange check will be perfect in the backing!  thank you!!!  i put you down for that - i am sure someone will come along and  add the rest - perhaps some blue to piece with the orange . . . or something . . . we'll see what happens

thanks, sandy!  i got you down for 2 blocks as well.  i've pulled out my wee stash of blue & orange, just have to decide on block pattern
