100% cotton panel and backing fabric, 80/20 quilt batting and 40 wt embroidery thread for the quilting.
What was your inspiration?
I purchased several yards of "scrap" at the annual tent sale at Keepsake Quilting in New Hampshire last year and this panel was one such "scrap". I collected so many beautiful "scraps" for Project Linus quilts and will eventually get them all turned into quilts for sick children.
What are you most proud of?
Just having the ability and time to make quilts for Project Linus as well as adding lap quilts for our veterans. I get to indulge my love of sewing and have the joy of giving to good causes.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Panels are easy and a perfect project for beginners as it allows you to focus on the quilting rather than the piecing.
