Great job! Your greatest move here is using your talents to help others. Thanks for giving your time and talents away and thanks for making a child smile.

Thank you, Kristina. Now I am making this quilt for the Children's Hospital in the area. I made QOV quilt and it didn't make it to its' intended destination. So, will not do that again with the same people. And thanks for giving me the idea where to donate. Know my own grandchildren love the quilts I send them; so hopefully, some other child will enjoy a quilt, also.

And your freehand quilting is great.

Thanks everyone.

Marilyn, unfortunately, there are too many sick children in need of quilts. My kids weren't so fortunate to receive quilts...so we brought our own from home when they spent time in the hospital. It sure makes the stay nicer and more like home.

Rail fence is another great pattern for donation quilts, because they can be strip pieced. I also think we should do our best on the quilting, even if we want to try new things!

Wow I love your freehand fans! You have inspired me to try that. It really is a pretty quilt and I agree, we should do a great job on a charity quilt. You never know how a quilt might make a difference in a child and/or their family.

Kudos to you!

I can't believe those or freehand! They look so darned good! Now, what were you thinking when you started this exercise? Was it as hard as it looks? ;)

thanks. i have to admit...it became easier as i went along. at first i was stressed worrying about the exact size of the fans. but quickly realized...as long as i only do 4 lines of stitching per fan...it will turn out fine. and it did. it always looks better off the frame when the quilt can relax a bit. and after a "bath", the quilt will look even better with its puckered look. i will certainly be doing this again.

Oh Kristina what a cheerful quilt. It is sure to make some child very happy to wrap up in that. You did a great job with your baptist fan. Thanks for sharing with us and giving us a reminder about the children in hospitals who might need a quilty hug.
