Iowa Comfort Quilt #7

This quilt was returned mid week, half of the fabric was donated by gal in Missouri that has a group of volunteers doing charity projects also.


Dian did a great job on the quilt top.  Dian and I are both in the Prairie Woman's Sewing Group, that Adel Quilting and Dry Goods hosts each summer.  In that group we learned that the prairie women had to make due....with what they had, and that they needed to be ingenious sometimes.  3 of the blocks in this quilt had slits in the fabric.  So in the spirit of make do, we found fabric that was close to the original block, and made a new corner for that block, removing the damaged portion.  TOP LOOKS GREAT!

Here is a picture of Dian hard at work on the quilt.  Because of the coloring of the quilt and the sashing that creates an window effect, we have decided to name this quilt " Rose Windows".

Thank you Dian for your help and support, it is a beautiful quilt top.

Until my next post.......
