Sew Some Love Sunday - LWR - Quilt Number Eighteen

Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!!  I am pleased to present the latest update for the Lutheran World Relief Mission Quilt Drive going on here at The Joyful Quilter.  You can review program details on the DONATIONS tab at the top of the blog.

This colorful quilt top was sent in by Darlene...

... Along with backing and (what was intended to be) binding:

I cut batting...

... From the roll purchased with contributions made by the following quilt bloggers...

Alycia @ Alycia Quilts

Along with the following local donors:
Ruth S. and Sue

Britt took it for a ride on the rails of her longarm, quilting it with her fun new bubbly panto:

Once she had worked her magic, the quilt was brought back to me for binding.  I did that while Britt worked on assembling another LWR Mission Quilt top (but that's a story for another day.)  Here we are, working away at my dining room table for the first time in more than a year:

Remember those binding strips that Darlene sent?  They actually ended up serving as a small border and...

Britt used this yardage from Nann @ With Strings Attached to cut the necessary binding strips:

Here is the completed Quilt Number Eighteen:

Happy quilters with a quilt that is SEW joyful:

Thank you, again, Darlene!  Your contribution, combined with those of a number of other quilters, provided another example of the fabulous teamwork going on in the quilt world.  Special thanks to those of you who have helped this project bloom!  More updates to come.

If YOU didn't get involved in the LWR Quilt Drive, there's a different organization that might capture your interest.  Preeti @ Sew Preeti Quilts is currently hosting a QAL to benefit Mercyful Quilts.  Find all the details at the Positivity QAL tab at the top of her blog.  

Until next time...
