Sandy Britches quilt is on its way!
Merry Christmas! Here I am standing in front of the tree with the finished quilt called Sandy Britches. I cropped the photo a little to remove the chaos of crumpled papers and also my fashionable fuzzy socks.
This quilt rode in one of the 2 church vans for 18-ish hours to get to New Jersey, along with our oldest teen and 17 others who made the trip. The team will be gutting houses which had been flooded by the storm. Someone they help will also receive the quilt to remind them of God's love and that others care about their loss and the long journey of rebuilding.
Here's the back side which was made from the scraps and a little extra fabric I had in my stash. These beachy prints were a large package of Fat Quarters which I won in a giveaway last month from Quilting Daily blog, handmade_quilt_art.
I asked y'all for help with selecting the layout for this quilt and it was an easy decision since all the comments chose Option 2. You can see the choices here in a previous post.
Thanks for your votes. Glad to have this one done.
Enjoy your day!
