CHARITY QUILT



Erin over at My Patchwork Life, has put together a huge undertaking of getting quilts to the Hurricane Sandy Victims.  I can only imagine how overwhelmed she has been.  I know a lot of you made blocks and sent to Erin.  I took a couple of the quilt tops over to finish quilting and mailing them off for her.  I did a simple stitch-in-the-ditch quilting and sewed the binding by machine using the faux-piping method. 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
One went out at the end of last year; this one is going out in tomorrow’s mail.  I hope it make someone's day brighter.

Quilt happy,

Marilyn

I remember making a few of those blocks. Nice to know that they were put together and quilted by wonderful folks like you!

This is really kind of you to do. I made some blocks. That faux piping finish looks super! Maybe when you get the time, show us how?
