2014 Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge, A Quilt Finish
Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is hosting her annual Hand 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge. You can read about her challenge here.
I'm going to send this quilt to "Quilts of Compassion." I used Mary Johnson's Quick Strippie pattern found on her website here. This has been a favorite pattern of mine for a few years. A good pattern for a pretty gift or donation quilt for a child.
This is a picture of the back. I used Connecting Threads' "My Little Farm" fabric collection to make the quilt's front and most of the back. Such pretty warm chocolate brown and mint green colors in this quilt.
This is a close up of the back of the quilt. It's quilted with horizontal wavy lines using my domestic sewing machine's quilting foot, a 3.1 stitch length and mint green cotton Aurifil thread. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 41.5" x 51.5". I want to thank my friend Sharon for sharing these fabrics with me. I can imagine a little boy loving this soft, sweet quilt.
