Charity Quilt

This small single/large lap quilt has been donated to the Southland Charity Bowls tournament for the auction night...

I quilted it all over with large straight lines to create a squares effect, and machine bound it.




I made it back in January/February - originally as a large quilt but I didn't like it that big and split it into two smaller quilts (I gave the other one to Tracey for her 40th) and this one has been waiting for the right reason to complete it.


Of course, nosy parker Rumbles had to get in on the action and try to give the 
quilt a cat-comfort test!



The charity auction was held last night and Brian says this sold for $160. Bargain!

Hi everyone!

  1. Nice Jen! Even though they are almost the same, the two quilts look very different because of the red squares layout. Another great finish, and it's really nice that you donated it to charity.

    1. Hmm, that ginger fur ball is only gorgeous when he is asleep! In typical ginger cat split personality style, he can switch in an instant from lying in your lap purring to suddenly trying to rip your arm off with his teeth - so moody! We have to put warnings out when new visitors start to pat him and have considered putting disclaimer signs on the front door LOL!

  4. I love the colours in this quilt, I adore anything is grey actually, but your red really shines here! Well done on raising money for charity!
