Charity Quilt Finish

I finished up a charity quilt…but I am really upset with myself.  I can’t say for sure who sent this one to me.

I quilted it sometime ago.  I had the intention to bind it right away.  Well it didn’t get bound and didn’t get bound.  Finally this week I had a little bit of time and decided to tackle it.  I looked everywhere but the note saying who it was from is gone.  I looked and looked and can’t find it anywhere.

I thought and thought and couldn’t remember and then I remembered the awesome box of goodies that this came in….books and toys for the childcare kids and quilt tops for me.  It was Julie that send this!!

I love the quilt.  When I first saw the top I was shocked how simple the construction was yet the quilt was still so cute.  I can see a little girl loving this one.

I just did a simple circle inside a circle.  The quilt is so busy that it’s really had to keep my place when I am doing free motion if I try any design that is more complex. So a simple circle inside a circle was an easy choice.  The thread is variegated pastel.  I have learned to like that on lots of tops.

The back of the quilt got a variegated pink thread.

The backing fabric was something I had here..and the binding fabric was from a donated amount of fabric.  The batting was donated too.  I think it’s so neat to see how many people come together to get a charity quilt to completion.  Thanks to all.

Right now I have this one in the charity pile waiting for someone in need.  Two weeks ago I sent out a big box full to Quilts of Compassion.

A big thanks to all who made this cute quilt happen…

    I really like that cute little quilt! Makes me want to make one myself!

  3. Reading your post sparked a thought. This quilt is really cute and a child will be thrilled to cuddle with it for many years. Back to my thought, knowing how cute this simple quilt turned out and knowing that people love quilts to cuddle with, why do I tend to want to make more complicated quilts. I need to make a reminder to myself to create easy quilts more often. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. Have a wonderful day!

    How wide are these strips and what is the size of this beautiful quilt?
    I have 2 granddaughters in MT that would love this. If you know what pattern it is I would be more than happy to purchase it.

    Happy Quilting💕

    The quilt is already sent out so I’m not sure. I think just 3″ but I’m not sure. I have no idea if there is a pattern as it was a donated charity quilt top.
