In a previous blog post, I mentioned that I had completed my first donation to Kaitlyn's Promise.
Well, I finished my second donation about a month ago and was able to send it off for donation, as well.
I finished most of the quilt top of this quilt while at our Idyllwild Cabin Fever Quilters' Retreat. I loved how easy this was and it really came out pretty nicely. I plan on making some similar quilts to use up some of my fabric rolls, that truly seem to be over-taking me.
For this quilt, I used Moda's Sunkissed line. Love it. It reminds me of sherbet with its oranges and greens, thus the name: Sunkissed Sherbet.
I used a stacked coin idea, but combined it with a bargello technique that I had recently used. I really liked the outcome.
The backing fabric is from the same line and is super-cute.
Another thing that I loved about this line is the "dictionary" entries that were incorporated into the fabric. I used one of these as the binding, as you can (kind of) see in this close-up.
This quilt, along with the Letters to Paris quilt, were both raffled to benefit the Kaitlyn's Promise Memorial Scholarship Fund.
