Sweet Little Group Finish

     Here's a lovely little finish to share with you.  I'm part of the community outreach committee of my local guild and each member of that committee comes up with a pattern or tutorial that can be used in the monthly guild newsletter for members to make scrap blocks from.  In September I shared the medallion log cabin tutorial by Tanya Quilts in Colorado and we received enough blocks (including block kits we handed out at guild) to make three quilts .


     This is the first of the three to be completely finished.  My friend Wendy used her domestic machine to quilt loops over the quilt top.  
     When quilting with blocks from lots of different quilters things don't always turn out the same.  This quilt top is proof that things don't have to be perfect to work out just fine.  Several of the blocks in this quilt were not quite large enough.  Patricia trimmed the blocks down to a consistent  size.  It looks so pretty in the shadows in the snow doesn't it.
I'm linking her up to Main Crush Monday and to Let's Bee Social.

The quilt looks great, and I like that the block design was versatile enough that it could be trimmed down a bit without loosing the blue centers. :)

It's a beautiful quilt, everyone should be very proud of it. Our guild is making a raffle quilt and it's the first time I've participated in a group project where I will help combine blocks make by several different quilters. I hope ours comes out as good as what yours has.

You chose a great design. It turned out to be a beautiful quilt. Lovely photo shoot too. All of our snow has melted now.

Congratulations to all who contributed. It is indeed beautiful. Very seasonally appropriate - Blues and Log Cabin. No more snow here. It is getting springy :-) May I complain just a little? More pictures, please. Close ups, please.
Hugs,
Preeti.

You would never know that the blocks were different sizes Lisa. This is just beautiful on the crisp white snow. So nice to know such a beauty is going to a worthy cause.
