Picking up a quilt from your long arm quilter is always exciting, right? I stopped into The Pin Cushion today to pick up needles and a new bottle of Best Press. And the bonus was that the group/donation project quilt that I dropped off a week or so ago was ready to be picked up. And the quilting is just gorgeous. This is a design I will request again for my own quilts. Thanks for the recommendation ladies!!
I've explained before how this quilt came to be. A group of 12 of us each made a set of 13 identical blocks which had to include that brown floral focus fabric. Then we got together and exchanged the blocks so we each had 1 block from everyone. The 13th set - this one - was put together and will be donated locally. We had originally talked about donating it to the local school district scholarship committee for their annual raffle/auction fundraiser.
It just needs binding and a label now, and then we can hand it over to the committee if that is what the group decides we still want to do.
