Sew Fresh Quilt Bee – April Link Up
I am thrilled to be able to share my second finished BEE block quilt with you!
Although I don’t usually don’t do improv, I enjoyed making the wonky slab blocks quilting along with all those who are participating in this worldwide goal of making 1000 quilts for the Ronald McDonald House Childrens’ Charity.
After finishing the smaller 12 block quilt, I got straight to work on putting together these final 24 blocks and getting this one quilted up the next day. I quilted my favourite organic wavy lines with my walking foot using plain white Guetterman thread on top and in the bobbin.
The backing and binding are Doe Eyed from the Moon Shine collection by Tula Pink for Free Spirit. And I added a strip of Northcott’s Artisan Spirit to the edge to make the backing wide enough. I love the bees on the backing and binding for this BEE block quilt!
Both of these quilts were mailed off last month to be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House Children’s Hospitals. It is my hope that all of the blocks and quilts we are making will bring a little joy and comfort to children in need.
I’m happy to have you join the hive! To read all about the Sew Fresh Quilt Bee click here.
