A Quilt of Love
This beautiful quilt is headed off for Japan next week. I was fortunate enough to help out with Log Cabins for Japan and make a few blocks myself (which ended up in another quilt), but I also got to assemble this beautiful quilt with donated blocks.
I love how beautiful it looks in the sun!
Many different people who never met, came together to make something for someone in need on the other side of the world whom they will never meet. There is love in every stitch. We hope this quilt will bring a little comfort and warmth (both to the heart and body) of someone who lost so much.
Connor wanted to enjoy some of the beautiful log cabin blocks too.
And test it out a bit by soaking up some spring sunshine! He told me he was adding more love to the quilt. Such a sweet little boy!
I donated the batting, backing, binding and some of my time. The binding was a simple light gray (pre-made) and the backing was a beautiful dark green with tiny roses.
Here's a just a few of my favorite blocks (in no particular order):
Does anyone know what this says??
Thanks again to all who donated blocks and thanks to Annik for organizing this.
Finished quilt size: Approx. 49" x 60"
