Charity Quilt Finish!

Another charity quilt is quilted, bound, and donated! This was made by Diana Vaclovick of Sweeny, TX, and sent to the amazing Jo Kramer of Jo's Country Junction.    Jo sent it on to me for quilting, and my lovely fellow guildmates in the Kountry Quilters of Wellman bound it. I did a simple loop design, which is good for a beginner like me and makes for a nice soft quilt for a child.  Perfect for this kid-sized, kid-friendly fabric! A fun and colorful quilt! Here it is on display at the auction - it was sold to help support Feed the Kids, and organization that supplies backpacks of food for kids in need each Friday, so they have enough food to get them through the weekend.  It brought enough to fill a backpack every week for the entire year for one child!  I'm sure the recipient will like it as much as my little nephew/model - he thought it was the perfect size for him!

WIP Wednesday

Some changes to the list!  First and foremost, I finished piecing Moda Building Blocks.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the results!  So I am undoubtedly going to spend several hours obsessing about how to quilt it. I was afraid it would be too busy with the prints, but it all comes together beautifully.  Not that I'm biased, of course... I got the MSQC, Tilted Squares, Moda Love and the batik quilt all bound. I finally got pictures of KerBloom! I finished the quilting on the PB&J four patch - loved how it turned out. I got started on a new mini for a swap - another paper piecing project.  I love this one, and it turns out I might get to keep it.  My original partner withdrew, and I think I'm going to try and do a project that she wants more than this current one. Also making project on my cross stitch round robins.  Slow but steady... Recent Finishes   Tilted Squares Batik Quick Quilt MSQC stars Moda Love   Piecing  Barb's Quilt - finis
