This one is designated to go to one of the widows.
This scrappy HST/4-patch top center was someone's UFO. It was really cute and there are tons of really cool fabrics in there! Kayla added the little border, made the muslin binding (a surprisingly suitable choice) and packed it away unfinished again (usually that just means it's waiting for quilting). Well, I pulled it out this week and quilted it up! Isn't there nothing better than hand stitching the last few stitches of binding down on a quilt you can't wait to see finished? I LOVE hand stitching a binding!!!
The red & white backing was also one of the donated fabrics, as was the stripe of birdhouses (and the last of the HST & 4-patch blocks). It's a thicker cotton weave, not sure what it would've been used for...a tablecloth maybe? It's a heavy fabric and layered with dream cotton batting...this is gonna be a warm quilt!
