Last fall during the Autumn Jubilee, quilter Diann won the prize of quilting a table topper. She contacted me to ask if I would do a small quilt for a charity called Building a Brighter Year instead of her table topper. This charity supports families with infants facing medical challenges and financial hardship in Colorado. Of course, this was a no-brainer, I had to say yes to help this very worthy cause. She mailed it to me, and I set it up on the longarm with Warm and White cotton batting.
Auditioning threads, there were several that looked nice. I decided on the brown on the left as it went well with the backing fabric she sent. It is also polyester, so it adds a bit of shine to the work. The bobbin has Bottom Line.
Quilting it was fast, as it was small.
I thought this sweet pantograph of hearts would look nice.
The scale was good for a small quilt, giving a nice density to the quilting.
I trimmed it for her, and shipped it back to her last week. She will add the binding, and then donate it to the charity for their silent auction, which will be in April. Thanks, Diann, for letting me participate with your charity! Her blog is Little Penguin Quilts, and I imagine she will show the finished quilt there when she gets it done.
Are you doing any charity sewing?
