This beautiful quilt was pieced by Sharon Judkins of Hatfield, Arizona. She sent two quilt tops and this is the first one on the frame. I sent this quilt top to Cheryl H. in Dallas, who works to provide quilts for House of Hope in Florida, and she did the quilting and binding. I can’t thank Cheryl enough. She was truly a God-send to me. I needed help to get all the charity quilts under control and Cheryl stepped right in to help.
Blowing in the breeze on a mild summer day.
The quilt is beautiful. The center is a work of art, and the four borders are an ornate frame to show off this wonderful design.
Look at these matching points. Wow! Sharon did such precision work on this beauty.
What’s not to like?! This quilt is 88″ x 88″. It will make a nice cover for a double bed.
The backing is pieced with four different types of fabric. Sharon provided the backing and binding fabric. To enlarge the backing, Cheryl added a center section with scrap fabric.
Even though the quilt top and the backing were made by different quilters, it looks like it was made to match.
Here goes the binding. Yes, machine stitched binding for both the front and back sides. It is a great way to go for quilters who have arthritis in their hands.
Little Libe is a quilter wanna be. She loves fabric!. After the quilt comes off the longarm and is trimmed, Libe gets to chew on the scraps. She hasn’t completed any projects yet with her leftover pieces, but she works hard at it.
“Just a few more minutes and I’ll have this one finished.”
Sharon’s beautiful quilt will be in the Federal Express system tomorrow and on its way to the House of Hope in Gainesville, Florida. The newest lady to arrive at the House of Hope will be thrilled to get this treasure.
Thank you, Sharon, for donating your quilt top and thanks to Cheryl for her work in getting it all finished. Cheers to you both for helping a lady who needs a quilty hug!
