A finish is always a good thing, and when it's for a good cause it's even better. I used some novelty charm squares left from another project and put them to use in this quilt. I first blogged about it here.

My quilt holder upper was trying to keep it from blowing around in the wind. The center I quilted in the square and triangles on all four sides, it gives it a nice texture. I used Superior King Tut variegated blue thread for the main part and Essentials blue for the darker border straight line stitching. I am waiting to hear back to see if this quilt will be going to Ronald McDonald house if not then I will donate to Victoria Quilts for cancer. Both places are near and dear to my heart. One of our granddaughters had 4 surgeries in 6 years and my youngest son and his wife stayed at Ronald McDonald House in London. My granddaughter received a quilt when she was there last time, so I am hoping that this quilt goes there. Either way they require them to be washed first, as you can tell by the crinkly goodness I washed it already.
The back piece has fish and fishing stuff in the print.

And one last shot in my maple tree. This isn't the first quilt in the tree and I'm sure it won't be the last.
The quilt finishes up at 54'' x 54'' after washing a nice cuddly size for a little one.
