Do Good Stitches


I finally finished a quilt I blogged about here (and yes, the pieces are supposed to be crooked -- my husband wondered about that when I showed this to him).

Anyway, this is now going to go to its new home in New York City after I read about a wonderful project about  Bumble Beans Basics. It's part of my ongoing mission to make charity quilts for teenagers. Quilters often make charity quilts for babies/young children or for the elderly, but too often the teenagers are forgotten. But they get sick and are sometimes homeless, too. And they could use the comfort of a quilt as well.

Here's a picture of the back....


And a closeup of the quilting. Improvisational piecing calls for improvisational quilting...
