Pix of Quilt from Anonymously donated Blocks

Hi All,

I pieced this top last year from Blocks donated anonymously to either my Guild or our LQS. I picked them up on a Charity Night & worked to piece it all. The blocks were large, maybe 15" square.

So here's the completed top.

I recently got confirmation that it was in fact completed, was longarmed by another member of our Guild (thank you Janice Ewing) who provided me with this completed pic.

I was so happy to see it completed.

It's backed w/ the same khaki as the outer border & I learned a tremendous amount doing it. The Maker did some really precise work making these blocks & they went together beautifully.

Once I took the blocks & pieced them, I felt responsible for getting this done & was so I gratified to see it happen. Apparently I missed the meeting where it shown at & returned to the Guild. Was my first experience in that kind of joint work, pretty satisfying!

Congratulations. It turned out very nicely. It has to be rewarding to see something like this completed and know you are a part of it. TFS

I first thought how lucky you were to get precisely pieced blocks that were donated. It is nice to see they are made into a charity quilt for someone. Your group project is very nice! Great job!

I noticed the beautiful Stained Glass behind the quilt in the first picture - thanks for telling us it was taken in a Church!

Beautiful quilt.
I always like to hear these kinds of stories.
I think that the person that made the blocks would be so happy to see the finished quilt.
TFS.
