That being said, I am really glad that I pulled through and finished this quilt. I chose an easy pattern that I knew I would be able to finish, and actually this only took me a weekend to complete. It was really nice to get back into my sewing room, and I'm happy that my weekend efforts might bring a little happiness to someone who is going through more troubles than just trying to balance their work life with sewing time. Sometimes I take it for granted just how good my life is.
This quilt will be going to the Quilts of Compassion charity which helps people dealing with disasters in their communities. I have never had to go through a natural disaster, but they seem to happen all the time now. I'm glad that this quilt might help make that ordeal a little easier for someone.
All finished up it is 60" square. That seems to be my favorite size of quilt. It's great for cuddling if you're an adult and you can really tuck in a child with that size too. I also thought the pattern and colors would be OK for an adult or child as well since it's not too grown up but not too childish either. I did a different type of quilting in each of the colors and then a large stipple in the background. For the backing I used a fun teal print that kind of looks like dandelion flowers once they've turned to the white seeds.
Anyway, thank you all for stopping in. I hope I keep finding time in my schedule to be able to complete quilts for charity. I have so much in this world, so it is important to me that I give some of that back while I am able. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and happy quilting!
