Black & Tan Quilt Finished

Whoo-hoo! I managed to get it done, just in time to link up with the OMG linky party over at Red Letter Quilts! 
Black & Tan Quilt for Hands2Help 2016

My priority goal for April was to get this Hands2Help quilt finished and bound, ready to send off to Happy Chemo. You can learn more about Hands2Help over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

The black & tan quilt is lap size, 58" square before washing. The fabrics used were entirely from stash, including the backing and binding. I quilted it on my domestic machine using the walking foot for SID around the sashing, and FMQ for a medium meander within the blocks. It's definitely not modern, but I've always liked this color combination.

This quilt is ready to be sent off to Happy Chemo for H2H, and I hope it brings a little comfort to someone.

  4. That number fabric is awesome, especially with the stripes. Should be a snap to match a recipient with this, I would have a hard time lettung go haha, especially if my DH saw it!

  5. What a pretty quilt! I'm a bright color gal myself, but can appreciate the subtle beauty of this one. I'm sure a chemo patient will be comforted by it's softness and then take it home as the perfect match for their living room couch!
