My Meadowland scrappy quilt top was completed during my vacation, but the quilting had to wait until I came home.
I had to admit it is not very scrappy, the blocks are big (16" finished) and I only used fabrics from my stash. The colors are bold and bright, the dark blue/navy background is perfect for a charity quilt to a young, adolescent boy, or girl for that part.
The quilting is a simple crosshatch pattern, I feel this is right for this modern quilt.
I found this perfect "quilt holder" in my walk in the forest. The uprooted tree looks like a monster or troll holding my quilt up.
The quilt measures 48" x 64" and is the perfect size for a charity quilt.
There are so my great photo locations in the forest/recreational area. I am very fortunate that it is only a 10 minute walk from my house.
The quilt is backed with a print from Ikea, and the binding is the navy fabric.
This is my sixth charity quilt for the year, and 35th all time for the children's ward at the hospital.
