The third quilt I made this year for donation to the Linus Project is one that was made with a large panel showing rows of storybook characters.
The top border incorporated a “Whirlwind” block from the Electric Quilt 6 software alternating with 9-patch blocks.
The bottom border was all 9-patch blocks.
The backing/batting was light blue fleece and machine quilting was minimal, using free motion stitching around the rows of storybook figures and in-the-ditch stitching on the borders. The inner border had decorative stitching going down the center.
The finished quilt measured 38″ x 57″.
The Linus Project distributes donated quilts and blankets to seriously ill children in local hospitals.
