Another Quilt for Virginia

A group of young and older people from my church are currently in Virginia, spending March Break out of the snow (we hope) helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity.

As usual, the ladies of the church Quilting Circle, made a quilt to send with them, as a symbol of our warm wishes. The quilt will be given to the family who will live in the house.

The top was a foundling, dropped at the church by someone who chose not to finish it. It has now been hand quilted and is ready to move to it.s new home.

It spent the last month, hanging in the church so it could absorb the good wishes of the congregation.
We got a lot of positive comments from the congregation, which makes us happy. Oddly, we weren't very fond of this quilt, when it was on the frame. It is amazing how much quilting can improve a top, making the things that should stand out, really pop.

Our next quilt is nearly finished.
Bright, isn't it!


  1. This is a truly wonderful gift, and homes built this way have so much love and thoughtful wishes coming with them.

  2. What a gorgeous quilt, it will certainly brighten up its owner's new home! The next quilt is very happy too.

  3. Every new home needs a warm welcoming quilt. very generous of the members of your church first to help build the house and then donat the quilt to help turn it into a home.

    Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.

  4. It's a perfect quilt to send, with the bright happy colours. What a nice touch for a new home.
