18 down 7 to go!

Yes I now have 18 quilts for the orphans. Only 7 more to go and all the kids at Hope Homes International will have a quilt. Slowly getting there.
So I made this ages ago but have finally quilted it all. I posted about the making of it here.
As there were a lot of different styles of blocks I decided to quilt in an overall flower and loop pattern as anything that was rigid lines or diagonals would clash with various blocks. I used a quilting pattern that Crazy Mum Quilts had put on her blog one time. I am pleased with the result.
The back of the quilt is in a 1970's flannel that was donated and the binding in a black and white spot. Also donated.
Happy to be finished. 
I link up to these places and finish it up friday with Crazy Mum Quilts.

  12. Well done!! You are truly going to be blessing those children and they will know that somewhere in this world there is an Earth angel who cared enough to make them a quilt of their very own.
