This week I am pleased to share another Portland Modern Quilt Guild charity quilt… actually one of my favorite so far I must admit…
The blocks for this top were made at one of our Charity Sew days (check out my original post for more details) and then shipped off to be quilted by one of our wonderful members. This time it was the amazing Nancy Stovall who did the long-arming.
I love the pattern that Nancy chose for the quilting and extra love that she did it with yellow thread….
…it just pops against the grey and makes the whole quilt come alive. I am constantly amazed at how the quilting and binding can bring a quilt together… you think I would have that figured by now, but no, every time total amazement.
The quilt is backed with a mixture of Michael Miller challenge left over fabric and some very cool donated pieces.
This quilt will be heading to Raphael House, a local women’s shelter here in Portland, hopefully to provide some warmth and comfort.
Block: 9 inch wonky pin wheel block
Quilt size: 45 x 54 inches
Fabric: Riley Blake charcoal solid and lots of red/orange.yellow scraps

Beautiful quilt–and I love the yellow quilting thread. I never would have thought of it but it does make the quilt even more vibrant.
Oh my… Love it! I love colour and this is so bold and graphic!
It’s gorgeous! I just loved watching this come together. I know some fantastic woman will absolutely adore it.
I love that something so bright, cheerful and lovely will bring warmth and comfort to someone who desperately needs to feel cherished. Good for you! I hate ugly charity quilts. This is fantastic.
Beautiful quilt! I love those vibrant prints with the charcoal! The quilting adds a nice movement to the quilt.
This turned out so well! The yellow thread really does add a lot to the quilting detail. I love the additional movement the swirled quilting gives to the pinwheels, too.
Wow, wow, wow! Think this is my favourite quilt from this Friday’s finishes on Crazy Mom Quilts! I love that moment when quilting and binding are complete and the whole quilt emerges for the first time. You and the long-arm quilter did a perfect job here!
I am sure the person who receives this quilt will be super happy.
Love your style Cath!!!
Thanks Elsa. We could not have done it without your fabulous fabric scraps. Thanks.
