I live such a good life…my email box is a happy place…so is my mailbox. I love it. What a blessing to have more good in the boxes than bad.
I recently got a note from Lori L. signed her note “Day care grandma and farm wife, Lori”…she sounds like a kindred spirit already. Anyway, Lori is one of our volunteer binders. A bit ago I had sent her a quilt to be bound…and bind it she did!
This quilt originally was made by Brenna in Wellman, Iowa.
What an quick and easy pattern but great looking too. I was a little bit nervous about quilting it. I did a square design in the white area. I did straight line quilting in the colored section.
The backing was donated by Forest Mills Quilt Shop. The girls were cleaning out the shop one day. They had fabric that was on the clearance rack but still didn’t sell so they passed it along to us. It’s a big print floral that has all of the EXACT colors that were on the front of the quilt. It’s like it was meant to be.
We found binding fabric to match.
This was a fun project to work on. Thanks so much Brenna and Lori for helping this quilt come to be. Lori has donated this quilt to Sharehouse in Fargo, ND. Sharehouse provides chemical dependency services. They prefer twin or single sized so quilts. If anyone has a quilt top they’d like donated to Sharehouse just send it on to me, I’ll get it quilted and sent on to Lori to bind. Remember…many hands make light work.
