The beginning of this week found me with a stack of four quilt tops waiting for quilting.
One of the quilt took me three days (can’t wait to show you, I still have to wash it) and the next one three hours!
I just needed an “easy” quilt to quilt! I love to quilt but I am really tired of challenges! So this project came just in time!
Alison of “Little Island Quilting” is making quilts for street children in Mexico City. And this is my little contribution.
This was a quilt top I made long time ago; I loved each fabric I used for this top but the final color combination did not speak to me and I did not have any desire to finish it. Now I decided that it is the time to give it a chance!
I used a fluffy polyester batting. Of course, it is not as easy to work with it as it is with cotton batting. The quilt doesn’t have that “crinkly” look given by a cotton batting, but the quilt is lightweight and warm -making it perfect as an utilitarian quilt.
The quilt measures only 53” x 78” – it’s so easy to quilt this size!
If you want to help too, read more about this on Alison’s blog. If you can’t make a quilt, Alison is collecting quilted blocks and she assembles them in quilts. Maybe you have some orphan blocks and don’t know what to do with them?
Have a great weekend.
