Summer Linus Scrap Quilt

I’m calling this quilt ‘summer’ not just because it was made this summer but a couple of my friends at the Linus sewing day said “Strawberry and Raspberry colours”.  Unlike most quilts this one started with the backing – a piece of embroidered material presented to me at a previous Linus sewing day with the request to “make a front for this”.  I delved into my ‘stash’ and found a collection of similarly coloured squares and the plain material, all passed on from a friend.  I had only to add one square from my material to make enough for the front; it’s quite small 26” by 34”.  I planned and cut the squares at home and sewed and quilted it at the last Linus sewing day.  The quilting (free motion ‘scribble’) was done from the back to avoid sewing over the embroidered flowers. The binding was found in the Linus pile and today I attached the binding, so it’s all ready for the next sewing day.

These are some more quilts for Project Linus that I have  mostly made myself, using material pieces donated to them.   Sadly my photography skills are not brilliant, so the colours are not true. Quilt 2 is mostly browns and I designed it to flow from dark through to light. I practised my free motion quilting of fishes on this one.
