Quilt by Phyllis for Quilts Beyond Borders

My friend Phyllis made this quilt for our joint project.

There are so many happy fabrics in it.

Even the smallest little glimpse of sock monkeys just makes me smile.

Here's a look at the backing.  It goes together well, doesn't it?

I quilted this one with circles.  I saw a video using this inside circle template
somewhere, can't exactly remember where, but I decided to order one and give it a try.  The inside diameter of this circle template is 3 1/2", which makes a 3 inch circle.  You just travel around the inside of the circle with your hopping foot.  It was really fun.  Of course you know that I am not a professional quilter.  Not even close. But I did have a lot of fun playing with this one.

I think this is another quilt that some child will really love.  Phyllis, Sandy and I have seven quilts completed for Quilts Beyond Borders, but I have two more on design walls, so who knows?  There may be more before it's all said and done.

Phyllis is coming over tomorrow to quilt a personal quilt.  Isn't it fun when your friends share your quilting passion!

What's firing your passion today?

Hugs and kisses,
