I recently got an email from Lori who finishes twin to full sized quilt for Sharehouse, a center that works with individuals who need extra help conquering their addictions.
“Here is one of the quilt tops that you recently sent me. I wish I had taken a picture of this quilt top before I pressed and loaded it on the machine.
Maybe you have the picture that you had sent me. (I do but it’s not the best picture)
This quilt top was so fun to work with. Beautiful fabric, nicely pieced and unique that it is made of equilateral triangles. How wonderful and generous of a quilter to donate this top.
I had a lime green fabric that I used for the backing.
I am so appreciative that the quilt top maker sent along with the binding already made and ready to stitch on the quilt.
I think I would have been hard-pressed to come up with a fabric to use for the binding that looked this nice.
The fabrics show up nice and bright in the outside photos. My husband held up the quilt on this breezy day. ;-)
This quilt will surely brighten the day of a resident at Sharehouse, a chemical and alcohol recovery residency program in Fargo, ND.
Thank you to the quilter who made and donated this quilt top and binding, and thank you Jo for sending me this quilt top and giving me the opportunity to donate to Sharehouse.
WOW!! What a pretty quilt. I can’t imagine the courage it takes to fight addiction. This quilt is so bright and cheery. I’m sure it will put a smile on the recipient’s face!! THANKS so much to the maker of the top and of course to Lori for her generous gift of time and talent!!
