a quilt for…

I’m not sure who this quilt will end up with, but I’ve got plans to donate it.  Probably to Project Linus seeing as though we were a recipient at one point.   I actually just found out about a quilt collection for Newtown, CT and Sandy Hook that Taunton Press is coordinating, stop by Carolyn Friedlander’s blog for the link if you want to donate a quilt. So I’ll be sending it that way today!

I’m really pleased how this quilt turned out, I was questioning it as I was making it.  Seemed like too many colors, but after it was all quilted and washed I really like it.

I think it’ll be perfect for a little girl (or a boy who likes lots of color!), so hopefully it’ll spend some quality time with it’s new owner.

I made it from a charm pack of Simply Color by V and Co. from Moda which I had gotten from Amanda’s shop on her black friday sale.

I threw in a bunch of fat quarter solids and a few neutral stripes and went to town with A Quilt is Nice’s zig zag quilt tutorial.  It’s backed with a lovely gray print from Lotta Jansdotter’s Bella  Echo and bound in Robert Kaufman essex linen in hot pink.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!  ♥

    Oh I love the colors on it! It’s fantastic and so happy. Some little girl (or boy) will love it! I made a project linus blanket too recently, my first. Felt like doing something to help others. Still need to donate it though; maybe that’s a good thing to do today. 😉

    ‘Tis Echo (and one of my favorites!), which goes to show how nicely Lotta’s lines go together. Wish I could get my hands on some of the advance bundles of Glimma. Love this colorful quilt and it is going to find a great home! That hot pink is going to make someone very jazzed.

    Very Very nice. I love the colors. They are so bright and cheery. I have the same print that you used as backing. I used it for my Brother’s wedding quilt I made him. Whom ever will receive it will love this quilt.

    Love it! You’ve always got such a fresh take on things. I have a stack of fabric waiting to be made into a quilt and I’m going to do the same pattern. Happy Birthday!!!!
