Color Block Quilt

In the wake of the Mendocino Lake Complex fires, I decided to turn out some quick community quilts. Local organizations have asked donors to contribute money just now and goods later, because the displaced fire survivors don't have anywhere to put new belongings. This gives quilters in the area a chance to make some quilts!

The local quilt shop donated the fabric. I borrowed the idea from 100 quilts for kids 2014 (fourth one down). This pattern is probably the fastest lap quilt I've ever made. Including cutting out, it took five hours to create the top. A local long-arm quilter is donating her time to finish these quilts, so away it went to be quilted. The local quilt guild is collecting bed quilts and lap robes to be distributed in the near future. A community pulling together to support itsown.
