April Quilt

I finished another Continuous Strip quilt. Here are the strip sets. I usually start by pulling 2 1/2" precut strips from the drawer, then if I need to, I cut more from the stash to fill out the color scheme.

The top had sat on the shelf for a couple of years, until it was properly aged.

Then I got the idea to donate it to the local chapter of the Humane Society for their annual fundraiser. There's nothing like having a goal to help get something finished.

I also got to practice my free-motion quilting. By the end of the quilting, I had the hang of it.

I didn't attend the event, but I heard it sold. I'm glad I could help out the shelter pets.
