Two Linus Quilts

I donate at least three quilts a year to the Linus Project.  The quilts are distributed by the nurses in selected hospitals to children with terminal illnesses.

Quilt #1 for this year was a red quilt, designed for a girl.  Quilts #2 and #3 were made using a focus fabric with colorful pirates and aimed at little boys.

I based my pattern loosely on Flip a Coin which was demonstrated on the Fons & Porter TV show.  It consists of wide strips of focus fabric, slightly narrower strips of scraps and  narrow strips of a coordinating fabric.

The quilts went together easily and I used my Bernina to do some meandering quilting.

I hope a couple of little boys will enjoy the quilts and their funny pirates.
