Welcome to the international version of the 100 Quilts for Kids Blog Hop! Thank you to Cheryl Arkison of Dining Room Empire (and co-author of Sunday Morning Quilts) and Jane Davidson of Quilt Jane for today’s posts. One of the things I love about the sewing/blogging world is the chance to make friends (and even meet them on occasion–Cheryl, Amy and I had lunch in Houston last fall) from all over the world. In this case, Calgary, Canada and Brisbane, Australia.
You still have almost a month to make and donate a quilt. Let’s get sewing, yes?
My mom made this quilt top with fabric I sent home with her in June. I love this fabric, but new I could never have time to make something with it. The quilt pattern is based on the Stacked Coins Quilt Along that Elizabeth from Don’t Call Me Betsy hosted last year. I quilted and bound the quilt in the car on the way to the beach–I only bind quilts on the way to somewhere, by the way. I snapped some pictures with my iphone, as my camera ran out of juice early on in the trip. Note to self: pack the charger, even if you think you have 2 charged batteries.
I had a lot of fun quilting this quilt–wavy lines down the columns of coins, a big meander around the outside border, and nothing in the white columns. Something new every time and I’m bound to get better, right?
