Friday Finish: MCC 2016 quilt

I actually cannot believe I completed a king-sized quilt top in a week. It would never have happened if I hadn't been at a quilt retreat. No distractions like laundry, errands, dinner preparation....you know what I mean, right?

Isn't it amazing what a change in value does to two blocks made from an identical pattern?
I sized the center of the dresden to use Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House. Can you see those pretty blue dots surrounding the center?

 
So while this is not a completed quilt, it is a major completion for me.
 
It now goes to Mark's cousin for her so-fabulous quilting. Every other year we collaborate to make a king-sized quilt for a charity donation. I'm so thrilled with Moccasin (pattern by Gen X Quilters) and the neutral color scheme that I stole from Kristi Kristi shared with me--giving me the list of each and every fabric she used. She works in a quilt shop near Olympia, Washington, so I was able to purchase some fabrics through her and was able to track down all the others except for one. Check her out on Instagram--@71stitches.  Thanks to you both. I hope it brings lots of money for such a good cause.

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, TGIFF and Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Happy weekend.

  6. Cindy, Your work is always incredible! Love how God uses so many talents to help people around the world through MCC. One of the Fresno quilters gave me an idea. Here goes- I would love for you to make a doll quilt to go with one of the many dolls I receive for the silent auction at the MCC Sale. Pray about it and let me know.

  7. Love how you set it off center. I think that really set it part from other more medallion style quilts. It looks great!

  8. Wow! This is a striking quilt, Cindy! I like the asymmetry of the design, and how it's all neutral, or at least all subtle colors. I'm sure this will be really appealing for your auction. You're so generous with your time and talent. Good on you, girl!

  9. Congrats on the big finish. Can't wait to see the quilting. Love that you made the circles to work with the pearl bracelet ring. I've never made a king sized quilt. Need to make two queen sized ones right now though.

  11. So beautiful and congratulations on finishing up this quilt! When you said neutrals, I just wasn't sure because I had the original colors in my brain. But this is gorgeous. As usual, your quilter's eye is flawless.
