Scrappy Gift

DSC_0905Originally, this quilt was destined for the women’s shelter in a neighbouring city.  All winter a colleague and “Sister” in ministry was living in the local RC rectory because her apartment was damaged in a fire.  April 1st she returned to her home and I gave her this quilt as a “welcome back” gift.  It is simply quilted, with parallel lines of stitching at varying widths.  Quick and effective.

Luke 8:39

“Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him.

    Your quilt is gorgeous. Did you make it up or have a pattern?

      No pattern, just a bunch of fabric and blocks left over from other projects. I made 20 – 12 1/2″ blocks and sewed them together. Thanks for the compliment and for stopping in. Welcome!

    Love this! What a great way to use up those extra blocks. I have a couple of bags of them I keep tripping over in the front of my closet–better to get them out and make good use of them.

    It really is a fun quilt. Way to go!

  4. What a beautiful quilt! It is sure going to a good home!
