A couple years ago, a relative of a church member donated a bunch of quilting material to my church. This individual’s best friend, who was a quilter, passed away and left them all her quilting material, sewing machines and notions. This gift was the seed for a quilting group to start at the church. This is the first of the quilts I have managed to finish and was sold at the annual Christmas Bazaar.
The block is called “Block in a Box” and was quilted by The Quilty Guilt. Using a chain piecing method it sewed up much quicker than other projects I have finished, especially since the center block was 8″ x 8″.
It was purchased as a Christmas gift for a young man who also received a ‘big boy’s bed’.
