May was my first month as quilter for the Imagine Circle of do.Good Stitches. After much debate, I decided to have the members use Elizabeth's Radiant Ring tutorial and make blocks using orange, yellow, apple green, aqua, and white.
I decided that the blocks needed some sashing to break up the busyness of all the colors and to enlarge the quilt a bit, so I added a 2" strip of Kona Azure between the blocks and also used that as the binding.
For the back of the quilt I used a vintage sheet that had a fun aqua floral print. And now for the confession...I totally cheated on this quilt. Since I was quite pregnant by the time I received all the blocks and got the top put together, I sent it to mom and got her to quilt it on her longarm. I knew there was no way I was going to get this baby basted and quilted in a timely manner so it was Mary to the rescue! She even hand-delivered it when she came to help when Jill was born. My mom is the best.
And now the quilt has been sent to Threading Hope, an organization that delivers quilts to children in need in various poverty-stricken and war-torn countries around the world.
