A Storybook Linus Quilt

full0709The 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.
