A couple of weeks ago my aunt, who lives in Michigan, asked if I would
make an adult size quilt and a couple of baby quilts
to be used in squad cars and the ambulance in her small town.
The baby quilts I had made, but I didn't have an adult size quilt
done that would be appropriate.
Out came some fabrics and some simple, mindless sewing began.
Sometimes simple is best.
Sixteen patch blocks were made from some
shweshwe fabrics I had, paired up with the turquoise solid.
Some straight line grid quilting was done diagonally on the quilt.
I've had this fun fabric in my stash for a long time
and thought it would make a great backing for a squad car quilt.
Prayers were said over this quilt as it was being sewn.
One prayer was that it wouldn't be needed often or at all!
The pops of color in the shweshwe add so much to the design.
It has been washed and is in the pile with a few other quilts.
My aunt is going back home tomorrow,
so these will be delivered today.
Be safe and be well!
