Sweet quilt...


This is a top that was donated to my favorite quilt shop. The shop then asked customers, if they wanted, to take home orphan blocks, tops or fabric and return completed quilts. These will be donated to charities picked by the shop. This top was probably pieced by another customer.






This is a close up of one type of block. I have seen this 3D bowtie before, but never felt the need to know how to make one. I found a tutorial for one if you would like to make it. I can just see a small child sticking their fingers into each side!







This is the other block. The fabrics don't match...but all the solid blocks do. I think some child will love this. I hope so!

here is the back...







Can you tell I loaded the backing on sideways...ran out and had to piece the last bit!!??? All I live and learn! On to quilt the one ON the frame!

Hey, that's a cool idea the way you laid the pieces out.

Oh, btw, JANE said she'd be your friend, too!

Someone will feel warm and important under that. Good job, Tracey

Lovely as a spring breeze. I like to think about little ones manipulating 3-D features such as these, too. I can just imagine how they'll remember playing with their quilt. This is such a worthwhile project, great job!

Thank you for the advice. I went to bloglines and I've done something, but I'm not sure what yet. I hope tomorrow I'll find out what I did. (I think I subscribed to a few blogs... Will have to wait and see if I get a notice about them!
