Hmm, I guess I never posted this quilt! This is from an online charity group I'm in, the Faith Circle of do.Good Stitches. Each month a "quilter" in the group picks a pattern and color scheme and every other "quilter" and "stitcher" sends 2 blocks. The quilters then assemble and quilt and deliver to the chosen charity. Our charity is called Restore Innocence and the quilts go to women rescued from human trafficking.

The color scheme for this was a bit different for me and was inspired by some brand new clothing I had hanging up next to each other--a coral top, a dress that was navy/plum/white, and a turquoise/teal t-shirt. I picked the Greek Cross block and this is what rolled in!

We quilted it on the quilting frame at our local Bernina shop, who is a good sponsor of my quilt guild. And a sweet friend of mine took it on vacation with her and did the binding on the plane!

I wouldn't have thought of putting these colors together but they really work.  Love the pattern.  It looks beautiful!

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

scrappy looking quilts are so great. What a great cause! Crafting for charity always warms my heart.
