The backing s also a soft flannel plaid, which shows up the quilting very nicely.
Although I often show the Quilts on Wheels projects because I am part of that committee, the Capital Quilters Guild also supports other charities. One of these is Quilts For Kids, whose recipients are babies in the Neo-Natal Intensive Care nurseries in area hospitals.
Here is a very soft and sweet Quilt for Kids project that Kathy sewed together. It reminds me of butter mints.
The colors are actually more pastel than the photo makes them appear. Even plain squares make a lovely patchwork quilt. On this one, I wanted to do something different, so I attempted another of the Line Dancing designs by Diana Phillips. Usually I use the line dancing, or continuous curve, techniques on much smaller blocks, but they looked cute on this one. The squares look like a puffy posy, and at the intersections there is sort of an orange peel design.I think the backing must have been an old pastel sheet.
Looking forward to being with my quilting buddies after being mostly snowed in all week!
