Charity Quilt Finish

Blog readers often send me quilt tops and I machine quilt them and bind them.  Then they are sent off to a worthy charity.  This is one of those….

Now that the quilting room is clean and organized I’ve been wanting to get back in the swing of finishing up charity quilt regularly.  Until the room was under control I found doing the charity tops a little more challenging.  Now that everything has a place and everything in in it’s place (most of the time) I’m ready to go again.

Happily I finished this one….

Charity-1

The design is not fancy but the colors are great.  I can see a little girl finding the matching rectangles on this one.  I showed my 5 year child care girl she was oo-ing all over.  She loved it.

I did try to liven it up a bit with the quilting.  On the top I used a variegated pastel thread.  You can’t see it’s pastel in the photo.

Charity-3

The motif is an easy all over free motion floral that I do.  I’ve done it lots and lots.  For me anymore it’s quick.  The back has a rainbow variegated thread.  I love to use variegated thread on the backs of quilts especially when I have solid colored fabric for the backing.  I think it livens it up a bit.

No quilt is complete without a picture of Ruby on it…so here it is.

Charity-2

Sadly when Kelli helped me clean the sewing room she didn’t realize that I have been keeping the charity quilt tops in the boxes from who they came from.  That way I could keep track of who sent them to me and give proper credit to the person who donated the quilt.  I am going with a guess and saying this one was donated by Sharon.  (am I right??)

The quilt turned out nice and I am sure it will bring someone comfort soon.

Today we’re sharing our finished quilt at  Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.

    Yes, Jo that is a top I donated. It is a simple pattern and I made two of these tops to try and use up some scraps. I quilted the other and gifted it but this one was left in the pile of un-quilted tops for a long time. You made it look so pretty with the quilting you did on it. Hopefully it will bring a smile to some one. Thank you for being able to do this. If you ever need any more donation tops, I have more!

    Wow, I would have guessed that was a pantograph. If that is easy for you, I am very impressed! So nice to do charity quilts…I know I am one who doesn’t mind piecing them or donating fabric to make them, but I just can’t do the quilting part. Thank you!
