Weekly Finish #11 and #12: You Are My Sunshine and Quilters Stand for Ukraine
This is my finished "You Are My Sunshine" quilt for my granddaughter Katie. I started it in March and posted about it here.
I quilted it on my Moxie with an E2E floral design. I just love my Moxie with the Pro-Stitcher Lite but I still have a lot to learn.
I found the perfect backing with tons of sunflowers and cute little birds.
The quilt measures 56 x 71 and, of course, a quilt is not complete until it has a label😃.

My granddaughter Katie came for a week-long visit last month, and I gave her the quilt the day before she was to fly back home to Kentucky.

I've been making quilts for Katie since she was born. This pink and blue rail fence quilt was the very first one I ever made. This quilt was well-loved and somehow it survived the passage of time. It found its way back to me where I am safely saving it for Katie someday.
I made this small 24" wallhanging with Pat Sloan's pattern that she designed as a fundraiser for Ukraine's children.
I originally made this small quilt to hang on my front door to show my support for Ukraine. But I decided to make a lap quilt instead and gave the wall hanging to my niece who I know is as horrified as I am about what is happening in Ukraine. I know she will hang it on her front door.
I was more than happy to make a donation to Unicef and am thrilled to know that as of this date Quilters Stand for Ukraine has raised almost $225,000 for the children of Ukraine.
