Natalie's House is one of the charities supported by PebbleCreek Quilters. It's a group home for six hard-to-place girls in foster care, ages 6 to 17. We provide twin bed quilts, and as each girl moves on, she gets to keep her quilt. The staff at Natalie's House are anticipating some turnover in late summer/early fall and they want to have a few quilts on hand so that new arrivals will immediately have a quilt on their bed. They've requested twin size 70 x 90.
When I found out about the request I thought we didn't have much time to make twin size quilts. But I had one of the prototypes for the PCQ Charity patterns, the Basketweave top, which could have borders added to bring it up to size. The original top measured 60 x 80" and featured shades of blue, aqua, teal, and cool green. Isn't the blue sky a perfect match for it in this photo?!
I'm positive that the quilt is going to go to someone who is going to love it. I hope you have a fun day working with Mary and getting the quilting done tomorrow.ReplyDelete
