Covering the World: One Quilt at a Time

Today I am sharing a quilt I made to donate to my local Crisis Nursery Center.  This is in part with Covering the World: One Quilt at a Time.   My quilt is made from Island Batik Fabrics and my Accuquilt 2.5" strip cutter and 5" square die. The pattern I used is from Connie who blogs at Freemotion by the River and is called River Squares. This is an easy and fun pattern and it is a free one!




I Love the bright colors and think a young child would be drawn to them also. My hope is that this quilt will give someone a little comfort when they are going through a tough time. 


I quilted this on my Nolting Funquilter with a freehand allover swirl-my favorite design for great texture.


Here is information on this worthwhile cause:  

In 2022, AccuQuilt, Moda Fabrics and Baby Lock are partnering in a pay-it-forward campaign called Covering the World: One Quilt at a Time. Moda and AQ staff and designers will be donating one quilt a week, to a charity of their choice, to support this campaign.

Making and donating a quilt is such a rewarding feeling, I only wish I had more time to make more.  In the meantime I will do what I can to help fulfill the need.
