I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Comfort Quilt For Dawn

After hearing that my husband's cousin Dawn was facing a very serious health issue, I was compelled to make a quilt for her.  I used a bundle of fabric from Guildcrafters, one of the very well-stocked quilt shops in my area.  I actually found the bundle, one of many that I bought, at a quilt show they were vending at this summer in Ann Arbor, Mi.

The pattern is one of the "post card patterns"…this one called
Spice Drop….by Villa Rosa Designs.
It finished up at 54" x 72"…and was made with 14 fat quarters cut into 6 1/2" x 18" strips.
Super fast cutting and very simple sewing, so it went together quickly.

 I quilted it on my HQ Avante.  The panto is called Drift.  

Yes, I used Minky again…..it is so easy to load on my machine, 
and the texture and softness it adds to a quilt is just wonderful!

I'll be wrapping this one up today and sending it on it's way, with hopes that it will make the days ahead for Dawn a little more comfortable.
