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
