Another charity quilt is on it’s way to it’s intended recipient. It is a wonderful feeling for me when I get an email saying another quilt is done and headed to it’s new home.
This one was pieced by Cheryl Harts and bound by Karin.
This is a quick and easy design. It sure would be great for show casing a few favorite fabrics….or if you have a layer cake waiting for inspiration, this design could easily work.
Here’s a closer picture….
The backing was a thrift store find. I try really hard to find things that work with the front. They aren’t always perfect but they work…
The purple binding was perfect for this. My daughter Kalissa has a theory. She says when picking binding, look for the darkest color on the front of the quilt and match it. Most of the time, I find that to be sound advice.
This one is 80 x 92. This is a great size for gifting.
Karin writes, ” It’s been designated to go to the Gatlinburg Tennessee wildfire victims and will go out in tomorrow’s mail. It’s still cool there in the mountains, so I know it will be appreciated! ”
I am sure it will be. I do think quilts are appreciated anytime of year. Sure quilts provide warmth but I think they also provide a coziness feel to a home too…I imagine for a family it’s a great ease on parents knowing that a quilt is one less thing they have to come up with money for. Quilts also make a bed very inviting and homey. Few things in life beat a inviting bed.
Thanks for all the help ladies. This one is a so pretty.
