Charity Quilt Finish

I got another of the charity quilts done.

Quilt-1
It’s such a pretty string quilt.  The colors on this are MUCH better than the photo shows.

The quilt isn’t really big so it was quick and fun to do.  I believe this top came from a blog reader, Michele from Bathesda, MD.

This one was quick to get thrown onto the machine as there was a backing for it.

Quilt-2
I tried out a new quilting motif.  It came from this book- Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting: Turn 9 Simple Shapes into 80+ Distinctive Designs Best-selling author of First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting.  I love the book.  You can see another quilting motif that I tried from the book by following this link.

Quilt-3
I’ll try this motif again.  It was easy and I like the look.  Besides the obvious reason of helping those in need, I love doing charity quilts as it allows me to try new motifs before I put them on our own quilts.

Neither Kelli or I use batiks very often so it’s fun to get a chance to work with them.

Thanks for sharing a quilt top with me Michele!!

We are hooking up with Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.
