Finished Girly Quilt

And here it is—the finished girl quilt for Ronald McDonald House! (Here’s a link to the first post I wrote about this quilt.)

The charity asks that all quilts be washed before they are donated, so this is the washed version. I didn’t pre-wash the fabrics before I made the quilt, so once washed, it ended up with a slightly puckered, soft look, making it extra cozy.

My dragonfly pal made it through the wash pretty well. The writing I had done on the wing was a bit light to begin with, and it seemed to fade in the wash. So I’ll go over it again—a little darker this time—before I send it off to its new home. Fly away, dragonfly pal, fly away!

    This is beautiful Christine; your creativity shines when quilting. My aunt Janie lost her cancer fight September 30th, she looked forward to and enjoyed reading about your quilting journey. Thank you for sharing.
