As my finish for September I completed the quilt I promised to make on behalf of the Hope circle of do. Good Stitches (an online charity bee). In March I told everybody in the circle my plan, and they went to work on their blocks. The tutorial we used is Simply Woven by Jessica Kelly on Moda Bake Shop. Over a couple of months the blocks came in, and this month I told myself I should finish the #$%*lovely*&%$ thing.
pattern: Simply Woven
size: 48" x 60" (120cm x 150cm)
blocks by: members of the Hope circle of do. Good Stitches
assembly, quilting and binding by: Muriël (me)
batting: 100% cotton
quilting: straight lines and free motion waves on my domestic sewing machine
charity: Jopie's Dromenquilts (Jopie's Dream Quilts) for children in hospital and chronically ill children
My son Emil helped pick out the colors for this quilt because I wanted the quilt to be for a boy between 8 and 12 years old and I thought he would know what such a boy would like (Emil has just turned 13). We made a list of colors and the bee members interpreted them with fabric from their stash. They did a great job, because Emil has already asked me several times if I really have to send this quilt away...
