Charity Quilt Finish

Blog readers often send me quilt tops.   I machine quilt the tops and bind them.  Then the finished quilts are sent off to a worthy charity.  This is one of those….

You might remember that last week I told you about a wonderful quilt top that Elley sent to be quilted for charity.  At the same time she also sent this one.  I love this one too.

This one is baby quilt sized.  I used the same edge to edge quilting design on this one as I did on Elley’s other top.  I just love the way it looks.  The thread I used is actually a little darker than the cream background fabric.  I’ve found that using the darker thread make the design more pronounced.  I love doing that.

I had to dig around quite awhile to find a blue homespun for the binding.  All the other blues I had seemed a little to bright.

The backing was a little funky.  It’s kind of cowboy/bandana themed and although it’s a little loud, I thought it would work.  I think it was sent to me by a blog reader….It really does take many hands to make light work.

We’re keeping this one here.  Kelli is now working at a nursing home and she’ll be on the look our for a resident who might be able to make good use of it.  I know when my mother in law was in the nursing home she loved having a small quilt.

Thanks for the great quilt tops Elley.  It was a privilege to get to work with them.

Today we’re sharing our finished quilt at  Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.
