A Charity Quilt Finish

Over Easter weekend when I was sick Hubby told me no working….well loading a charity baby quilt is no work…and quilting it is no work..is it?  I certainly didn’t think so.  So that is exactly what I did.  I loaded and quilted a small baby sized quilt that was sent to me by Michele in Bethesda.

Last week I got it bound.  Michele picked an awesome backing in a red that was the same shade of the red on the front.  I ended up having enough left from the back that I was able to use the rest for binding.  SCORE!!

I just love quilting these small ones.  It makes me feel like I accomplished something!

I had put a picture up on the blog asking for advice on what color to use….VERY few people said the light grayish….Well that’s what I used.  My gut said to go with it even though all of you though something different so I did.

I really think it was a good choice.

I used my favorite quilting motif.  This one!

Since I discovered this quilting motif, I’ve used it a lot.  It’s so simple and goes with most everything.

Thanks for trusting me with your quilt top Michele.  We have this quilt in our stack waiting for a place to send them to.  If anyone know of somewhere needing quilts let me know!

We are hooking up with Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, Michelle’s Romantic Tangle and Link a Finish Friday.

    Cute quilt. Nice quilting! I will often use cream, khaki or mother goose thread so the quilting doesn’t stand out too starkly. I caught the coughing crud too and haven’t touched my machine or rotary cutter in three weeks now. That’s going to have to change! :)

    I am making your Sneaker Threads quilt pattern which appeared in the Mar/Apr 2014 issue of Quilty; however, it is not coming together as I would like. Can you please tell me the measurement of the blocks from Instruction #1. Thank you
