Finished! This quilt came together by the help of the lovely ladies in the Faith circle of the Do.Good.Stitches quilting bee. Each person made the blocks and I assembled the quilt. It’s a simplified Whirlgig block. Sometimes we all need EASY! And still, I struggled to finish this one. Between life, finishing our flooring, and having my sewing room packed up in boxes and stored in the garage it was a challenge to get it finished. Even on the last two rows of quilting my machine decided to protest and I had to give it a time out before continuing. But it is now done!
Thank you to all the wonderful women in my quilting bee! This quilt will be given to Restore Innocence, an organization that rescues girls from human trafficking.
approximate finished size – 54″ x 66″
blocks – 6″ simple rail fence arranged in a whirligig layout
border fabric – an old one from Lakehouse Dry Goods that has been in my stash
backing fabric – Kaffe Fassett’s Radiation print in pastel found on sale at my local Ben Franklin
