Project Night Night
My fabulous guild, The Chicago Modern Quilt Guild, directed its Sew to Serve Chicago charity efforts to Project Night Night, an organization that provides basic items for the children of those needing shelter. At yesterday's meeting over 40 quilts and stuffies were collected. While the thought of making stuffed animals terrifies me, I was willing to make two quilts.
Since I don't have light and bright fabrics, I bought a jelly roll of these bubble pastels and an accompanying packet of fat-eights for the back of the quilt. It's 50" x 60". It's the cover quilt from Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr's Quilts Made Modern. Here's the other quilt I put together, made from blocks that were improvisationally pieced at the January CMQG meeting.
