By day three of the new year my plans for January were flipped upside down, and resulted in stitching up this top for a comfort quilt. I didn't mind the change of plans too much, because the quilt will be for a good friend who is recovering from her most recent heart incident. She is just a couple months shy of 86 years young, so it's about time she had a warm colorful quilt to wrap up in.
Here's the completed top. My friend loves birds and so the panel and cornerstones will please her.
The backing has been pieced, and I'll plan to layer and pin the quilt at our ministry meeting next week, and hopefully complete the machine quilting and binding in a week or two. Finished top measures 51x70 inches, a nice size for a throw quilt for her chair or sofa.
A closer look. Many scraps from both quilt ministry and my stash were used for the piano key border. I think there are 24 or 25 different fabrics used.
Linking with Wendy's Peacock Party here. And wishing you all a happy quilting weekend!
