Flowers of Love

In November I received a lovely group of fabrics from Mari at The Academic Quilter.

I decided to make a quilt top using this group along with a group of pre-cut batiks from a fabric exchange at our local guild. I stitched them into strips.

The colors blend very nicely. I decided to use them in a row quilt top and send it to Kat and Cat Quilts: Covered in Love. This is run by Kat, a nurse at a Texas hospital. She and her friends will complete the quilt. It will then be given to a family of a dying patient, a comfort in their time of grief.

I’m happy with the finished top, which measures about 46 x 60 inches.

I know that Mari will be happy to see that her generous gift has been used to bless a family in need of comfort.

If any of you are interested in helping with this quilt ministry, please contact Kat to learn more about it.

I’m linking up with Angela at http://superscrappy.blogspot.com/and Cynthia at http://quiltingismorefunthanhousework.blogspot.com/
