If you’ve followed my blog for awhile you know that I make a couple of quilts for charity each year. I just finished a quilt for a group that I am part of called do. Good Stitches which is organized by Rachel at Stitched in Color. There are several groups and each group is made up of 10-12 quilters that stitch blocks and/or assemble and finish the quilt. I am a quilter at this time which means that I am also responsible for coming up with the design and colors for that month.
For my month, I decided to use the Square Pegs pattern available at Moda Bake Shop. I asked the stitchers in my group to use their scraps and make blocks in melon colors. Think watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew. And boy did they deliver. It’s so bright and fun. And will be a great quilt for the women that benefit from the makeovers done by Enchanted Makeovers, the charity it is going to.
I quilted it with organic stacked half-moon shapes. The blocks are 13″ square. And because I asked our stitchers to make it scrappy, I had to refigure the instructions for assembly, but it was an easy pattern to figure out.
It snowed this past weekend and the snow made the perfect background for this bright quilt. It was 8 degrees when we were outside taking the pictures. Just a little cold so I didn’t take many pictures, but thankfully I didn’t need to. Today, 5 days later, it’s 70 degrees. Gotta love NC weather!
