All quilted and bagged

     Months ago, I finished a top made from charm packs called Katie's Quilt, the pattern free from Missouri Star Quilt Company. I had my mother initially sew the charm squares, which were paired together, and two opposite sides were sewn, right sides together, which she could handle. Then I cut them in half and chained them lengthwise. It is kind of a fun pattern and now with my new Doug Leko Simple Folded Corners ruler, the next one I make, I am using it on the rectangle corners. I already have the pairs of squares ready for my mom to start.
    I had to rush on this one, because my mom promised a cousin I would make her one when she found out the woman has bone cancer. Then she tells me. Anyways, the photos are taken before washing, because I immediately after washing and drying, comfort quilts go in a tote bag and large ziploc bag to stay absolutely clean.
Taken under the garage overhang, so some shadows 
Taken in the sun, but not enough fence to display flat

Fun fabric someone donated to me (Gwen) for the back

More detail, I changed up the design in each white area, ruler work in the 16 patches.

Great quilt. It will bring lots of comfort. Hope she heals from the cancer.

Such a pretty quilt - I had to run right over to YouTube to find the videos. I know I have some charm packs to use. The ruler you are referring to - is that (like) the one Bonnie has been selling?

AWESOME scrappy quilt for a good cause!! It was a fun surprise to see that each background section was quilted differently. Hoping that's a good distraction during treatments!

Nothing like a good scrappy quilt for covering someone with love. The quilting turned out beautiful....super job over all.

Your quilting is beautiful and works perfectly on the quilt. Well done! You make the simple piecing really shine.
