Pink, Lime & White Charity Quilt

During the November IMQG event, we started working on blocks for a charity quilt. Many of us donated scraps of pink, lime and white fabric, for a modern take on traditional Christmas colors!

Those who made it to the show created sampler blocks in these colors for a quilt. We chose to donate it to the Assistance League of Indianapolis for their silent auction, to be held December 1st. The Assistance League helps clothe 3,000 kids in the Indianapolis Public School system as well as serve the community in many ways, and we are happy to be able to help them do what they do. :)



In order to meet the tight deadline, Rachael volunteered to assemble the quilt blocks, piece together the back and quilt this project. She finished up the quilt top the same night she received all the blocks, and it was quilted and bound about 6 days after that!

Didn't she do an awesome job?!

Tisha photographed the quilt so we could all see it before sending it off to Lynne with The Assistance League.


Thanks to everyone who was able to come in November and help us make blocks! If you have an idea for a future charity project, we'd love to hear it.


We're sharing this finish over at Sew Modern Monday and Fabric Tuesday.
