Well here’s a quilt top that kinda came out of nowhere.
My local guild, South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild, started a charity group called PIF (Pay It Forward). To get it started, we’re attempting to make 31 quilts in 31 days for Jacob’s Heart which is a group that supports children with cancer and their families. Since there’s some time pressure, I drafted up this quick pattern and made this in a few hours. I tried to stick to gender neutral colors, but I’m not sure the prints aren’t a bit girly.
As I was making this quilt, I kept thinking about the child that would receive it. I hope it goes to someone who likes animals and reading given all the animal prints and the few bookish prints I added in there. And I really hope it makes their day a little bit better.
