I think that the more hands that go into charity quilts, the more love is shared. This quilt is a perfect example of this.
The blocks come from the fabric selling site Thousands Of Bolts. They used to sell those high end basket liners. They sent me a BIG box full of these. I was really a stumped how to use them. The first job was to square them up to uniform and usable sizes for quilts. That alone was a big job. Next was to figure out how to get them into tops. I tried a couple of different ways and got many tops sewed.
This is the first one totally finished. The backing is from a member of my guild-Pax River Quilters. The blocks from Thousands of Bolts. The border I think I bought but that may have been a donation also. The binding is from a friend named Dee who sent me a large amount of patriotic fabric. This was a little stiff for a quilt but fabulous for binding. My friend Shelia brought her Accuquilt and the die for 2 1/2. We cut a huge amount at our library sewing day.
And last but not least, my dear friend Polly sent me a lovely fabric that I put on the top and bottom to get it a little longer. I still have more of that and it will be used for this on many more tops.
This quilt will ultimately end up Andrews for our wounded military returned home.
