Here is a little charity quilt that I just finished for Capital Quilters Guild of Raleigh. It is for the Quilts on Wheels project, which provides lap quilts for residents of rest homes. I do not know the piecer- they dropped the top off at the guild, and I picked it up to do the quilting.
This one reminds me of the colors and fabrics of Provence, France. I took my quilting inspiration from the blue sashing/border fabric. It features loopy circles.
Here is a pinwheel section of the quilt.
The backing is a blue and white checked homespun.
I also finished another quilt for a customer, which I will share next time. In fact, this charity quilt was a warm-up for it, since I had not used the Gammill in a week. It helps to get in the groove!
