Blog reader Heather Lentz has been following my charity quilt completions, and she came up with one of her own. Heather sent this completed quilt to Cheryl in Dallas as a contribution to the House of Hope. I didn’t have to lift a finger on this quilt, but Cheryl and I want to share it with you.
What a beauty! The background of yellow is a favorite, and the rust colored sashings set off the scrappy blocks so well. The yellow and rust and the dark blue cornerstones are constant fabrics; the rest of the blocks are all scrappy. Surely that made a dent in the scrap bag!
So many four patches, so many blocks. Notice the detail in the border.
This close-up of a block shows how the quilt has crinkled up after washing.
I think Heather needs to give lessons in precision piecing. Look at those matching corners. And even the tiny pinwheels in the center of each block are perfectly matched.
The twin-size quilt is on display outside in Dallas.
Heather even hand stitched the binding. What a labor of love.
A neutral backing for this colorful quilt.
Sadly, the House of Hope in Gainesville just had a fire, and two of the gals’ quilts were destroyed. This scrappy quilt is on its way to the House of Hope via Federal Express, and it is going to make one young lady very happy.
Thank you, Heather, for making this charity quilt and for letting all of us enjoy it.
