Busy as usual in the sewing room this week. I was asked to make a donation quilt for the Indiana Diabetes Association’s Gala. The color to support diabetes is red. Went through my stash and found all the black, red, and white fabrics. Last Sunday during football the fabric was cut and ready to be sewn. Here is the design wall sneak peek.
The quilt was finished at 2am and photographed at 7am. Not the best pictures but at least I remembered. I have been known to forget when I’m on deadline.
Off it went with the hubby to work on Friday to be auctioned off on Saturday. Friday’s project was finishing a gender neutral quilt for some ladies I met while doing a show. They wanted something modern and selected some of the vintage fabrics I had in my stash.
Here’s the back. It’s a vintage sheet and I LOVE it.
Adding the tight quilting lines I think really helped. I tried to keep it as neutral as possible. Hard to not go girly or boyish. The quilt was picked up on Saturday and they LOVED it too.
Busy week but always worth it to see people very happy and thinking of a happy baby that will get to snuggle on the quilt.
