My H2H Charity Quilt is finished




Debra at Debra's Design Studio just completed the quilting on my H2H Charity Quilt, and I'm so pleased with the final results.  I worked in Kosovo and Bosnia, and the locals I worked with loved bright colors.  I'm making the assumption the folks in Romania love bright colors too, so I hope I made the right choice with my color selections.  Being fairly new to quilting, I was bumfuzzled as to what pattern to use, so Debra came up with this one.   This was my second time to do a 9-patch block.  The first time?  The first time was my initial introduction to Debra.  She had asked for donations of 9-patch blocks for a quilt that she would make that would be auctioned for the American Cancer Society.  She even had to send me the 9-patch instuctions and answer my questions about her color requirements.  I know I bug her to death with all my questions, but she's been a trooper about it, and has been there for me every time I've needed her.  And I've needed her a lot. 

Huge thanks to Debra!!!!
This is my first 9-patch quilt, and my first charity quilt.  I did it.  I can't believe it.  I did it.   Yippee!

Great job Deb!!!

The nine-patch is one of my favorite blocks - always my 'go-to' if I need to actually get something finished!
