Gingham Finish and !!! Finished ( or not) Friday!

Do you ever have all the worlds collide that just make you have to make a quilt??

I think that is what happened on this one - and I am really glad I did!!

I think.... I may have a few more of these in my future - as soon as I catch up on my list that is!!

All those worlds:

My own Mom was On hospice.  And we did Hospice in our house, I guess there is actually Hospice care in hospitals too, but we chose to keep my Mom at home. Which meant our care worker was on call with us, and met weekly no matter what.

And then Pretti and Bernie said they needed quilts for Mercyful Hospice..... and then I started asking Kat about her Hospice Quilt program 

And Then!!!  Nancy showed this Gingham Quilt.... I Knew I just had to make one .

and then! Our Hospice worker said how much she loved my Moms quilts..... I thought - yep! I am going to do the Positivity QAL for Bernie - and then see what I can do locally! So far I have taken them 18 quilts... Who knew I had that many that I could finish up? And now - I am starting my next batch of quilts and this will be one of them!!!

Isn't it fun?  All stars and I LOVE it!!! I think it is 50 x 59 inches.

I did pincurl quilting on it and.... guess what?  I BOUND IT! I did - there must be something in the air !! Well I know there is -  my allergies are horrible too haha!!

It's a beautiful gingham quilt, Alycia!! What a great gift of thankfulness for your hospice worker!

I love it! Your enthusiasm is contagious. I want to run into my sewing room right now and start sewing - lol! I love the fabrics you chose.
We chose to have our Mom at home for her hospice too - the hospice nurses were angels, and it was a very good decision.

Oh wow, I love that you took the Positivity Quilt as a prompt to see what you can do locally. Those quilts are going to mean so much to the families that receive them!

I love your gingham quilt! I really must make one! Hospice is such a deserving recipient! Hospice workers and nurses are special angels!

Cathy said...

Oh, yes, hospices are a great place to donate quilts. I like to donate in my local community. When my mom was in hospice care they put a different quilt in her fav color purple on her bed each day. And she remarked how wonderful it was to see those purple quilts.

Love the gingham quilt! Extra kudos for binding right away!
