Quilting for a Friend

My friend, Donna, brought this top to me to quilt for her. Isn’t it lovely? She is fairly new to quilting, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her quilts. She is good!

See what I mean? I quilted it with a design from Urban Elementz called Chaparell.

Here is a peek at the back:

This quilt will be sold in a silent auction to benefit H.I.S. Restoration Ministries.

Have a great day!

    Thank you for the kind words. The quilting makes it come alive. For Suzy, or others that want to know about the pattern; it is from the book Think Big, by Amy Ellis. The pattern is called Building Blocks. The blocks in the book finish at 18″, and I used one fat quarter for each block (with a little left over).
