Quilts for Calgary/High River

I have spent the last couple of weeks finishing some UFO's and sewing some scrap blocks together to send some tops to be quilted for the people who have lost everything in the recent floods in southern Alberta. I am grateful to Sparrow Studioz for their offer to quilt tops as that allows me to contribute to this cause. I do not have the time to completely finish quilts but I have a lot of tops that need to be completed and having a reason or time frame is always good for me.
I have been able to complete 5 quilt tops and it feels good.
Since I am giving these away I like to take a picture of every quilt I have made and thought I would share them here.
This one is Buckeye Beauty
made using the strip twist ruler.

You can't tell from the picture
but the centres of this are 3D-it was a block made to demo a new technique
at quilt retreat a couple of years ago. I only made these 6 blocks.

This is Crayon Box which is
a free pattern on Bonnie Hunter's site It was a swap a few years 
ago where I made 4 sets of 6 blocks. 3 sets were swapped with other ladies
in an internet chat group I belong to. I just made 1 more block to make 25.

The next 2 are both disappearing 9 patch
which is one my favorite quick patterns.
