Some Old Patterns, Some New Patterns

I'm still doing donation quilts but just haven't posted any for a while.  

Two more quilts made with fruits and vegetables.
I mentioned before that fat quarters multiply in the cupboard because I still have more of these fabrics and will probably make more food quilts in the future.

I was looking for something in one of my storage towers and came across these flying geese blocks.  I don't know what I was saving them for so I sorted them because there were two different sizes and added a few more and made two quilts.
The binding is stripped fabric and since I didn't have enough for both, one of the quilts has pieced binding.  Click on the picture to see the different colours.

Amsterdam Quilt

I found the pattern here.  I thought it was very bright and springy.  

Shoo Fly Block and 16 patch block using 2 inch squares.

I save 2 inch squares and put them together to make a 6 1/2 inch square.  This way you can pair them up with any 6 1/2 inch block and make a quilt.

I used the same idea as above but used 6 1/2 inch squares of map fabric and then put the same fabric as the border.  

I find a lot of ideas on the internet especially the website:

Square Deal Quilt

This is from  If you join their newsletter you get lots of free patterns.  I added borders to make it 36 x 48 inches which is a wheelchair size quilt.

I made this pattern before but never with just three colours.  The last time I made it scrappy.

Large heart

This pattern is on Craftsy website and it is also a Project Linus Pattern.
