Flower Sugar Donation Quilt

Yes, this is donation quilt week. I promise this is the last one I have for the time being.

Last August, I talked about the Flower Sugar Donation top. I made the top out of leftover fabric from the Flower Sugar Hexagon (Attack of the Hexies) quilt. Gerre offered to quilt it. I got the finished piece back from her at the BAM meeting. She hadn’t completely done the binding, but had sewed most of it by machine. I had given her a piece of binding that was a bit too short, so I added to it. Then I sewed it the rest of the way on to the quilted piece then spent the time hand stitching the binding down.

I was feeling like a bit of a slacker, so I was glad to get this piece done. It felt like I had FINALLY finished something.

The fabric I used was, again, called Flower Sugar by Lecien. I still have bunches of it left even though I also used it for the back. I warned Gerre that she might be seeing another one with the same fabric.

I also used some Bonnie and Camille greys/taupes for the background pieces. They are from various lines. Compared to the cool greys I am using for the Flying Geese, these background pieces look really, really brown to me.

So, yay! A finished piece. I am so pleased it is a donation top.

  1. What a pretty quilt! I love the colors. How do you decide on what pattern to use on a donation quilt? As soon as I finish the simple four-patch I’m working on, I’d like to branch out some.

    1. I am going to write a blog post on this, but basically, it depends on what kind of sewing I want. Rote sewing? I do the 16 patch blocks and just make as many of them as I can. If I want to try a new pattern making a donation quilt is a good, low risk way to try it out.
