Awesome Donation

I am not sure what happened this post was scheduled to post on June 10th.  I have been busy and haven't checked the blog since.  So here is the post now and the next post won't be until the 24th to get me back on schedule.  (this post deserves the full week of viewing. :-) )

Jean V. is awesome!  She has donated many quilt tops over the last couple of years. Her quilt tops are always a pleasure to quilt.  They are pieced expertly, always pressed and ready to be loaded on the long arm.  (a longarmers dream client!)

A couple of weeks ago Jean stopped by the house with another quilt top for Iowa Comfort.  She was continuing to use up her Crayola fabric, that she vowed would not go back into her stash.

Lets take a look at the top she brought us:

 This quilt is large enough for a twin and maybe big enough for a double bed.

Jean used her crayola scraps and made four patches and then off set the four patches with the pretty butterfly fabric.

I love all the directional flow in this quilt.  You have the dark lines from the crayola colored fabric, the white patches and the butterfly fabric.

It is a wonderful quilt all the way around! I know it will put a smile on whoever's bed it ends up on over at the center.  LOVE IT!

Jean also brought a whole sack of fabric to donate.  Yes I know I am not accepting fabric donations right now....but with every rule is there is an exception and I invoked it.

I will show you the rest of the donation next week since I have several pictures to show you.

Just a heads up that my sisters are coming for a two week visit in July.  If you think you might need a top quilted, July is almost booked out.  I will not be doing any customer work or quilting for Iowa Comfort the last two weeks of July.

Have a great week everyone!
