Spotty Bugs

Started in 2013 as part of an online mystery quilt along, Spotty Bugs had a rest until the right person/reason came along.  Just two weeks ago on this blog, I showed a photo of Spotty Bugs not quilted.  In the spirit of the Very Snuggly Quilts program, I decided to complete this quilt and donate it to a fund raiser for the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation (Melbourne) - Easter Family Fun Day - in memory of a beautiful little girl with amazing blue eyes.

I gave a choice of two quilt tops for the Easter Family Fun Day to the Donation Coordinator.  The Coordinator chose "Spotty Bugs" to be one of the Silent Auction items.

I put a striped binding on the quilt with a little 1/4in peeper strip to frame the quilt.

Pinwheel blocks, four patch blocks and square-in-a-square blocks work so well together when softened with a trailing hearts quilting design.

Pretty floral fabric for the backing.  The colours matched the front perfectly.

This quilt has finished up pretty and soft.  I have heard that the fund-raiser was a very successful event, raising funds and awareness in the local community for sick children.

Pattern:  Sundae Sherbet Mystery 2013 from Jeananne Quilts.
Finished Size:  92cm x 120cm  (36in x 47in)
Wadding:  60% Wool / 40% Cotton

That looks great. Did you do the quilting yourself?
