Service Project Kids Quilt



Here's the kid's quilt I just quilted and bound for the Quilt Studio service project. Debra, Jen, Julie, and Barbara were also involved in this. Isn't it a striking, masculine looking quilt for a boy? I quilted it with 12 weight thread in a pattern to echo the nine-patch design; this makes it even more graphic. A value of this project to me was that I did something way out of my comfort zone. I would never have put these fabrics and colors together, but I like the way they turned out. I'll be sending it to Amy next week to go the Children's Campus in Bethesda.
