Echoes - Cathy's Southwest Quilt Finished

Echoes - Cathy's Southwest
Charity Quilt for Redwood Family Center
70" x 90"
Original Design
Centers of blocks made of scraps and leftovers from quilt below.

Here is the original Cathy's Southwest quilt. I named the charity quilt series Echoes because the quilts share common fabric and color schemes of the originals.

The last few inches of topstitching the edge of the quilt after a pillowcase finish. I almost made it all around the twin-sized quilt before my bobbin ran out. So close!

Here's all that was left on the spool when I finished the topstitching. Wow, just made it.

I plan to make more Echoes quilts. I have background fabric for quilts made of leftovers from Frog, A Study in Stripes and Cristine's Bosties. When I have a few quilts finished, I'll take them to my church. Representatives from Redwood Family Center, where recovering addicted and alcoholic mothers live with their children, will pick up the quilts and deliver to the residents.

This is a large project, which includes about 50 twin-sized beds. To help defray costs, several generous co-workers have contributed cash, fabric store gift cards, batting and discount coupons to help purchase background fabric, batting, backing and other finishing supplies for the quilts. Many thanks to:
