Blog readers often send me quilt tops. I machine quilt the tops and bind them. Then the finished quilts are sent off to a worthy charity. This is one of those….
Quite awhile ago Cindy sent me a couple great charity quilts….Isn’t it fun. I really like this one. I’ve found that I really like quilts that don’t have many neutrals in them. This one is great. Simple pattern yet pretty too.
It’s truly an awesome quilt for using up scraps. Ruby liked it…
This is a free motion quilting motif I’ve used often lately. Simple..easy.
It came from the 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. If you don’t have this book and want to free motion, I HIGHLY suggest getting it. The book is my favorite and most used.
This is one that I have practiced a lot now and really love.
It was fun.
For the binding I used left overs from a backing that was sent to me as a charity quilt. It’s almost a periwinkle color and although there really is none of that exact color in the quilt, it still matches just fine! That’s the beauty of really scrappy quilts like this one…ANYTHING GOES!!
Thanks so much for the quilt tops Cindy. The other quilt is off the frame but I need to bind it yet…Both are great quilts. THANKS for being a link in the chain to getting these quilts out to worthy charities and people who need them.
