Here is my charity quilt finish.
I should probably restate that. It’s not really “my” quilt finish. It’s our quilt finish. The only problem is I don’t know who to credit for the other part of “our”.
I know this was sent by a blog reader but I either never knew who or don’t remember. It came to me as only a center. I decided to add a border to the outside to make it a little bigger and to dress it up a little. I had these three fabrics in my stash and auditioned them some time ago.
I ended up choosing the middle one.
Part of the reason I picked that one was because I had a sheet for the backing and it matched perfectly.
I did my hook and feather quilting motif. You can learn how to do that HERE.
This is one of my go-to quilting motifs.
I had enough of the border fabric so used that for the binding as well.
I didn’t get any pictures taken of …this one on the grass because there is so much dew on the grass in the mornings and lighting dictated that I take the pictures in the morning.
I keep a few quilts on hand that my kids give away for benefits. Just a month or so ago Kalissa talked to me about a benefit that was being held for a co-worker’s husband. Kalissa asked if I had a spare quilt to donate. I did…but when I grabbed it to pass on to Kalissa, I saw my pile was dwindling. That prompted me to get busy and finish this one.
I really like being able to help people, even the ones I don’t know.
In the package with this were more blocks of the same style. I ended up passing them to the Cresco Ladies. I’m sure they will put together another beauty like this one.
Of course…A Rosie picture.
Many thanks to the blog reader who sent this. I love teaming up with others to make great projects and donating them to a great cause. I am always happy to have a quilt in the donation pile. I really love to have one already made so I don’t have to stress about putting one together quickly.
Thanks for trusting me to finish this!!
