I had a productive Easter weekend. I was able to finish up quilting and binding the March UFO for the Patchwork Times 2011 UFO Challenge … and then I moved on to April’s UFO and finished that also! What a great weekend, quiltwise.
This is the designated March item:
This one will go to Margaret’s Hope Chest. Their project was born of a great tragedy and has lived on to bring hope to many people, including children of prisoners.

They currently have an effort on to collect tops (yes, tops) at Margaret’s Hope Chest with the added incentive of a chance to win a prize. Many of us have tops stacked up (sometimes for years) that aren’t likely to get quilted. It would be great to move those tops on out to a place where they can be completed and live happy and useful lives in their roles of comforting others. Who wouldn’t want to give their tops a chance like that??!!
Send completed tops (and yes, quilts can go, too) by April 29th to:
Margaret’s Hope Chest
630 Griswold SE

Finally, this is the April finish for the UFO Challenge:
|Flower Path Back|
|Flower Path Detail|
These were swapped blocks and they made into a cute child-size quilt. I like the pieced back almost as much as the front! This quilt will be donated to Wrap-a-Smile.
