Here’s my latest quanket, done in a chandelier quilt pattern. All of the fabrics were pulled from my stash and scraps.

When I began this journey over seven years ago of making quilts for kids in the foster system, it had been my intention to use up the large stash of fabrics I had inherited from my Mom. While many of these have been depleted over the past seven years, I still have a few that persist, mostly because they are unusual – either in color or design, or both. In this quilt, I was able to incorporate one such fabric: it is sort of teal in color, but tending more toward green, with large-scale printed seashells. While I was able to use up some of it, I still have about two more yards. Back to the thinking board on how I can use this one! 🙂

This was donated to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services for a child in foster care in June 2020.
