Three years ago, when I was working on Vintage Quilt Revival, I put together two quick baby quilts to practice my free motion quilting. One was a plus quilt (love those!), and this crazy quilt was the second one. I did everything but bind this quilt in California, then stuck it on a shelf when I got home.
I think this quilt would have benefited from less busy fabric, more solids, and/or a different color for the little corner snowballs. But, its soft and snuggly and happy, and that is important too.
I do love the back of the quilt with the single X and pretty blue fabric.
Heather has organized another great year of 100 Quilts for Kids, and I wanted to participate. I have had very little free time this summer, with house renovations, moving in, unpacking, chasing after kids, etc. I pulled this out a few weeks ago and am happy to finish it and donate it to a local NICU.
The quilt drive ends on Sunday (October 4)! If you have something you can donate, there is still time to be part of this year’s quilt drive.
