Scrappy Quilt for Quilts of Valour and Stash Report

Way back in January, before I broke my wrist, I did a post about a scrappy quilt I was starting - the link is here. I went to the guild's extra UFO sewing day on January 23rd and got the quilt top sewn together, all except for attaching the borders.  The next day I went to the hospital.  Dumb.  Anyways...

My b.i.l. and his wife came Friday night and spent the night.  We are on their route to our niece's apartment, where they were scheduled to remove some furniture (which oddly enough, is being stored in our basement for the next several months).  After Saturday's breakfast, and the guys heading off for their job as moving men then returning with all necessary  furniture, we went out for a late lunch at the local restaurant.

They hit the road for home early enough that I finished up a couple of small jobs left over from the week, then still  had Saturday night.  And no plans.  So I finished up this quilt which will be donated to the Quilts of Valour program.  All that is left to do now is a label, and binding which I think will be red, then a run through the washing machine.
This leads me to the first stash report in several months.

  1. That's a marvelous quilt - the strings, the setting, the back especially and the wonderful quilting. And great numbers, too! What a way to start the week.

  2. Lovely quilt and perfect quilting - is that a panto? If so, do you mind sharing which one?

    1. The panto is Milky Way by My Creative Stitches. It quilts up fast and looks really cute.


Please - share your wisdom...
