This weekend I needed a break from bee blocks and I decided to work on something for someone I had never met. At the beginning of the month I went to the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild meeting and I picked up a charity quilt kit. It had everything I needed, pre-made binding, backing, batting and 16 already constructed quilt blocks. The instructions were to do as much of the quilt as I felt comfortable with and bring it to the next meeting I attend. I got the whole quilt done.
Here’s a close up of the quilting – all straight line quilting.
I love how cute it turned out and I hope whoever receives it truly enjoys it.
Did you make anything this weekend?
Awesome blossoms! I love it… I have one just like it to make if I get the time…
Love it!! Sometimes it is the small, and simple looking projects that are the absolute best!
Awesome little quilt. I like to work on things for others as a change of pace. I only did a little hand stitching this weekend.
That is beautiful! I really hope the person who gets it likes it because I sure do.
So pretty! I began hand-quilting a Christmas quilt for the family my son is living with (out of state) this summer. Hopefully it will go fast….!
So cute! Wish there was a guild like that where I am!
what a great looking quilt!
It’s cute as can be, and will be treasured, I know. Your quilting looks super! I didn’t quilt this weekend. I’m about to go work on a thing or two that I started last week, though.
very pretty, well done!
Oh well done you!
What a precious quilt Melissa, someone will really love this!
Great quilt, you really got stuck in there 🙂 ChrissieD from P&J’s blog hop
Bright, colorful, cute, fast & done. My kind of project.
very nice Melissa ! Love it !!!
I worked on my Charity Blocks and a patchwork Pillowcase dress … thank you
What a good idea to do with scrappy pieces – are they 2-1/2″ squares? Or what size? It would be easy to cut scraps into blocks as I go, and then on a rainy day, piece together some blocks. It’s all fun!
That is so fantastic (both the quilt and the post!). I love the scrappy binding and the different color threads you used for the quilting.
Love it — going to keep my scraps!
