My church is having a talent auction this weekend to raise money for a new roof. My talents lie in the area of sewing and quilting, so I decided to make a baby quilt for my donation to the fundraiser. I found some fat quarters in my stash and purchased the yellow background fabric. The pattern is from 42quilts.
I cut out the pieces and sewed the blocks together one night, and added the borders another night.
I found the backing fabric in my stash and had to add a light blue strip to make it wide enough for the quilt. I added a label before quilting.
The animals on the back are fun! I used the serpentine stitch on my sewing machine to quilt it with my walking foot.
Christine was here to sew last night and she voted for red binding.
I hand sewed the binding last night and this morning, before I went to work. Tonight, I showed my finished quilt at the Elgin Piecemakers' Guild meeting. I will deliver the quilt to the organizers of the auction tomorrow.
My favourite quilt holder helped with the photo shoot.
I will be linking up with Crazy Mom's Finish it Up Friday tomorrow and to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching link up on Sunday. . There are links in my sidebar...
I hope someone likes the quilt enough to buy it!
