Here's a quick quilt that I put together for the Detroit Area Modern Quilt Guild's charity donation to Beaumont Children's Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. My favorite part of quilting is pairing fabrics, and it was fun to come up with a non-girly palette based on a robot print I had in my stash. I pulled everything together back in September and then finally got around to finishing this at the beginning of November.
I used 6.5" squares (final size 6") in a grid of 9 squares by 13 squares. The final quilt is 54"x78" and should cover the entire length of a hospital bed. I backed the quilt in a super soft flannel and quilted it with wavy lines using my free motion foot.
My favorite part of this quilt is the guild label, made by our graphic designer and guild member, Amanda. She did such a nice job on our branding and it was a great way to finish off the project.
