A fabulous finish for Friday…

This week I am pleased to share another Portland Modern Quilt Guild charity quilt… actually one of my favorite so far I must admit…

Finished PMQG charity quilt copy

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.

…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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
