Quilt for MHC

I had a blast helping make quilts for Margaret's Hope Chest in Grand Rapids, Michigan last Saturday. They had collected 1,000 donated blocks; about 15 people worked on putting them together. The pattern was a quilt-as-you-go method, so it was easy to get a whole quilt put together and done in a day. This is the quilt I made. These all ended up with pretty fronts AND backs. I ended up liking the back even more than the front. Today I'll be posting more pictures at my blog, so come on over and see the prettiness, here. --carol e.


  1. Great job. I was wondering how these blocks would come together. I know the blocks were supposed to be basically the same but I really like the heart the the block done on point. They give the quilt personality.

  2. Wow! It's beautiful! What a GREAT happy kids quilt!

  3. What a fun happy quilt. I know it is going to be be loved and cherished. It is nice to see how the quilts turned out. Wonder what the next project is going to be.
