Fruit and Veggie Quilt Finish

I finished quilting and binding the embroidered fruit and veggie quilt last night!  

This is a quilt that Mom Wald put together, which will be auctioned off for charity, specifically, Japan quake relief.

She brought together fruit and veggie themed embroidered blocks and fabric donations and assembled them all into this quilt.  It's adorable!

I just love the vintage embroidery patterns that were used. 

Even though there is an abundance of variety in the fabrics, it all works very well together.

Many people donated time and talent and energy for this project.  I think she said eleven generous souls participated.  That's amazing!

Here is the back:

And my favorite block.  Such a happy face!  Such beautiful stitchery!

I'll be getting this back to Mom Wald soon, and she is in charge of the auction details.  When I know more, I'll pass the information along.



Thanks so much for visiting!
