Sew and Tell Friday #6: Wrapped in Hope Quilts

  quiltimg 006

Another Wrapped In Hope quilt … this is the third quilt I have donated to this wonderful program.  I finished it yesterday and am sending it off today to it’s new owner.

This quilt is for Christian from California, and he likes Spider-man and books.  Perfect!  I already had the Spider-man material in my stash, which I’d purchased a couple years back.  I alternated the 6-inch squares with red, white & blue Hourglass blocks.  So simple, but what a great design!  Do you see the secondary  design the blocks create … the white star?  BTW, I’m sending Christian a couple of Spider-man coloring books along with his quilt.  Happy Birthday, Christian!

My quilting buddy Mary also made a Wrapped in Hope quilt.  Here we are yesterday in the parking lot of the community center right before our guild meeting.  Her quilt has butterflies and has a pretty pink flannel backing.  Perfect for a sweet young lady!

Another week has come and gone … can you believe it?!  Am linking up again to Amy's Sew and Tell Fridays.
