A few posts ago I showed you a quilt I was working on for the Linus Project UK and now it’s finished.
The only fabric I needed to buy was the backing as I had how I wanted the back to look like in my mind but didn’t have any fabric remotely resembling it. All the other fabric, including the binding and the stitch and flip dog’s face, were in my stash.
I machine quilted it very simply with horizontal lines 2 inches apart.
It measures 36 x 42 inches which is the size requested for a child’s quilt and perfect for me to manage on my home sewing machine.
I hope there’s a small dog lover out there who’ll find some comfort from this little quilt.
Next one will be another baby sized one (36 inch square) and I think I have some Peter Rabbit fabric in my stash somewhere so that will be a nice one to work on.
Project Linus UK is a volunteer organisation. We aim to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home made patchwork quilts and knitted blankets, and give volunteers across the UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community.
