And, I am back hosting Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday!
This quilt was made for me to learn more quilting skills. When I was taking a class in NH, one of the clerks picked out the fabric and pattern.
I used a pattern from this book and it was fun and easy. I like that I have the book in my stash and can use 3 yard combinations to make
So my plan was to learn to do a few new things. The first thing I learned was placing ribbon candy in the border.
Then I figured out a way to add the puzzle pattern by creating an irregular area that went across half the block. I would flip it to do the bottom half. You can see how it moves a bit around the diamond.
Then I added the 6 different animals in the center squares.
The back was one of the 3 yard, 108″ backs that I like to use for benefit quilts. This one is for one of the Hands2Hearts charities, that will be donated at the end of May. I am so pleased that this will make a young child happy.
