A ninepatch quilt that I will be donating...

The time is drawing nigh!  VTgal has already shipped her VA Hospital quilts to Winifred3 -- I know BeadLady is about to send hers.  

Ann has two tops to show -- and I have a plan for my second quilt.

Quilt top for 2thanks

The center block in this top is called "Peace and Plenty".  It is an arrangement of half square triangles that I think will make a pleasant secondary pattern when several blocks are set together.  I plan to make twelve of these blocks, scrappy, and put a border on to make a nice sized lap throw.


Here is the first of Ann's tops -- sort of a rail fence alternative setting.

And here is her second top, a Stretched Star done with a lot of novelty fabrics -- kind of an "I Spy" quilt for an adult:


Ann thinks she can get two more quilts done in time...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
