It seemed fitting to use a loopy quilting design because Huntington's is know as the dancing disease. Jill raised over three thousand dollars at her event; which is a great success for her first fundraiser where she coordinated a DJ, Food, Games and live entertainment. It was a very fun night.
You can see the pieced back here and some of the loopy quilting. This was my first attempt at this design. It wasn't perfect but I was pleased with the results. It's always fun to try something new.
I found this pattern in a magazine a long time ago and no longer have the article. I've made so many of these now that I don't even put out the directions anymore. I'll try to find them if anyone is interested and post a tutorial. Let me know if you like this and would like to know more about making one. It's EASY and QUICK. I don't know any quilters who are not excited about those two words!! I have a second quilt top all put together, it just needs the borders sewn on, quilting and then of course the binding attached.
I just have to share this great story of how this quilt ended up being won by a 3 year old. Near the end of the night just before the raffle names were to be drawn. A young dad brought his little boy up to the table and let him pick out anything that was displayed to put his 2 tickets into for the drawing. Keep in mind that there was this awesome motorcycle ride on toy in the mix that was specific to his age group. He saw this quilt and asked his dad to let him put both of his tickets in the box for it. Low and behold he won the quilt. He was so excited that he ran up and wrapped the quilt around his little body and danced around. How sweet! I was so touched because nothing about this quilt said "little boy".
As always thanks for stopping by!
