Mailing off my Plus

This little pretty is heading to Guatemala. How fun for her!

Last week, I read this post written by Valerie at Between Quilts about her passion for Lemonade International, a foundation dedicated to helping the people who live in La Limonda, Guatemala.

Valerie wondered if anyone would be interested in sending quilts to the children in Mi Casita Safe House, a project of Lemonade International  - and instantly I thought of this quilt, which had sadly been sitting in my sewing room waiting for binding for over a year now. Valerie's post motivated me to bind this baby and give her a new (and might I add exciting!!) life. I am thrilled she will be snuggled by someone special in Central America - how cool is that?!!!

She will be popped into the mail tomorrow! Does anyone else have any quilts that they would like to donate to Quilt Lemonade? I know Valerie would love to have them. Happy Halloween all! Linking up with 'Anything Goes Mondays' over at Stitch by Stitch.

ABC - a Quilt for a Special Friend

Some of you may remember the progress of this quilt, it went something like this:

And finally a finish to share:

A closer look at that fabulous sashing...

And a look at the straight line quilting going all the way from top to bottom...

 A cool light denim blue with gold spots for the binding and a fabulously soft (and thick!!!) dark turquoise blue fleece for the backing - nice and cozy for snuggling.

 One last day of sun for a backyard photo op...

I gave this quilt to my friend yesterday. We are not working together this year, so I think it will serve well as a reminder of all the fun and giggles we had together last year.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend. Linking up with "Finish it up Friday" over at Crazy Mom Quilts.
