I'm excited to have a finished quilt to share this week, even though I wasn't the person who finished it. Sometimes you just need a partner in crime (or quilting.)
Regular readers of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge posts will remember the group of blocks I was making in April when our color assignment was "multicolor." The blocks were based on the pattern "Tranquil Treasures" from the book Strips and Strings: 16 Sparkling Quilts by Evelyn Sloppy. I was trying to use up a collection of 2" watercolor strips from the late 1990's, and the fabrics just didn't excite me. I made enough blocks for a throw quilt, then set them all aside.
In September, Cynthia of Quilting is more fun than Housework hosted her fall Quilty Adoption Event. I offered my multicolor blocks up for adoption, with the preference that they be finished as part of a donation quilt. The winner was Chris in Shelby, NC. A couple days ago she sent me this photo of the finished quilt which will be donated by her quilt guild to the local women's shelter. I'm so pleased that she got it done so quickly and that it is going to a wonderful cause. Great job Chris!
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!
