This year I'm not going empty handed. I shall be handing over this quilt to the charity Siblings Together.
I used a couple of charm packs, mixed and matched, and went for a very 'loud' but fun pink dot border. I love pink and orange, so I quilted the central panel using a bright orange.
The binding is a funky geometric design, part of the Comma collection by Zen Chic. It's crazy but I like it!
I really wanted the recipient of this quilt to know that they are loved and that someone is thinking about them. So I appliquéd a little heart on the back, capturing this little humming bird.
Tula Pink's fabric also features on the back for an added injection of colour!
It's not a big quilt, but I don't think it needs to be.
All I have to do now is sew on the label Catherine sent me, and squash it into my 'hand luggage' sized suitcase. This is one finish I will be happy to part with, knowing that it will brighten someone's day knowing that they are loved.
