Yesterday I rummaged in my closet and found a panel that I wanted to quilt. I found backing fabric and pin-basted the layers together.
This morning, I felt inspired and began quilting, and by lunch-time I had the binding made and stitched on one side. Before I knew it, I had another small quilt to donate to my guild's community quilts program. We donate baby quilts to be used as part of a layette, but they also need funds to purchase many of the items included. It seems that "panel" quilts sell well at the hospital gift shop - so well, that they can't keep them in stock! We had a request for more, so I thought I could add one....
I didn't have any cheddar fabric for the binding, but found a bright gold to use instead. I find machine quilting panel quilts is a good warm-up practice for my free motion quilting skills!
