Back to the Care Quilt

Jeanne took the photo here of the Care Quilt when we got it back from Whispering Pines Quilt Shop. We love the textured effect that the meandering quilting added. She hung the quilt a wall of her barn/house and used natural light for the photo. I think it looks great and the colors glow. I did the binding last week and the quilt will head off for Spain this week to bring comfort and Care to a family member as she goes through chemo treatments.

What we love about this quilt is the simplicity of the design but the ability to make it speak to the recipient. Whether you use a charm pack, scraps from your stash, or shop for just the right blend of colored prints, the ease of assembly and simple layout pattern brings it all together. Using all the embellishments you want to add or just leaving it plain, it says "We care and are with you". That's a pretty important thing to say.
