Now this is a blast from the past. I made this top a couple of years ago during my 'string' phase but never got it quilted. I believe my inspiration came from the Pleasant Home blog but I'm not sure.
There is a family from our church going to Guatemala at the end of the month, and I asked if she might have room for a few baby quilts that she could leave behind when she visits the Hospital there.
She happily agreed to make room.
I dug through my closet and pulled this one out and finished it.
For the quilting, I traced around my trusty frying pan lid and used a light grey Aurifil 50 wt. in colour 2600
It goes with everything and I love it.
I bound it in a cherry print by Mary Engelbreit to match the cute backing fabric- Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey. It seemed a perfect fit.
That's one quilt ready to travel, and I hope to have a few more before they leave : )
Have a great week end

Adorable little quilt for a special little someone!
The circle quilting is so neat and I LOVE the binding! Awesome job!!!
So sweet! I'm sure it will be loved by a little someone in Guatemala. I love the bright border/backing/binding combo.
love this pattern...I might have to add it to my to do list!
How awesome to send along some of your quilts with your friends! The circle quilting is perfect and I love how you overlapped the circles!!!
stinkin' adorable - love the block settings!
Cute and sweet as can be! Certain to be loved and appreciated, Carla.
So cute! Love how the simple quilting sets it off.
Beautiful! Way to finish off an oldie. Someone else told me that gray thread is a good color for quilting. May have to put some of that Aurifil on my next order.
Great quilt! Love the colors, and the cherries are adorable :-) Visiting (and new subscriber) from Finish It Up Friday :-)

This adorable quilt will make someone in Guatemala very happy.
I love pinwheels! This is beautiful :)
The border, binding and backing tie everything together so very well. I think I need to use more turquoise after seeing this.

It's lovely Carla and your frying pan quilting is perfect.
Lovely quilt and it will make someone feel very special to receive it. Philippa xx
