Number 20 which I think is the best yet

Yes this is Number 20 Charity quilt for the kids at Hope Homes International. 23 is the goal at the moment and I am shipping in a couple of weeks. A few weeks ago I posted about Hazel gifting me piles of material and books for the orphans. In amongst it all were a few unfinished quilts.

Pining it all together

Stipple quilting
As soon as I saw this I knew I had to finish it and get it away with the others. There were two very large corners completed and some rows. So after a bit of unpicking, straightening and then sewing together, voila this amazing quilt. It took me a total of one day from 9am to 9pm to sew, pin, baste, quilt and bind.

To get it pumped out quickly I just reverted to large stipple quilting as that is my fastest technique.

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting on my post with my Windmill Quilt. I could not find an email so I hope it is ok if I thank you here instead.
    I love that red quilt. The striped sashing fabric really makes it. I had to look close to see if it was a tiny paper pieced sashing. You sure fixed and finished this project up fast - amazing.
