Quick little quilt

Rachel and some of her work colleagues have been collecting donations to purchase blankets fo go to a shelter for young homeless women in Venezuela. (Someone they know is volunteering there). It seems one of the 20 or so young women has an infant daughter.  Rachel asked if I could make a quilt for the baby so it, too, would have something warm. 

In half a dozen hours on Saturday and Sunday I stopped my quilting projects and quickly made this little pink scrap quilt and fused on some  butterflies.  Nothing fancy or cutsey, but I'm glad I recently collected a handful of pink scraps from  the free table at a guild meeting as I thought that my stash of pink was very limited. So, in a sense, this quilt is not only made by me but donated by some women who will never know that their generosity is warming a baby girl on another continent.

I love this pink quilt. There's nothing sticky about those pinks.

Thanks, Nellie. I like these fabrics much more than the cartoony ones.
