Season's Piecings

The Zion-Benton Unit of the Boys & Girls Club of Lake County has a "Have a Heart" fundraising banquet at Valentine's Day. It includes a raffle/auction. I knew I would contribute a quilt to the event but it wasn't until December 24 (yep, three days ago) that I found this pattern in a stack of articles I had clipped from quilt magazines. The design is by Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith, aka Possibilities.
Some quilts just throw themselves together, and this is one of them. All the homespun fabric came right from my stash, including the red-on-red border.  It's 64x72 and it's finished!!


  1. I can't believe you worked that up so quickly! It is beautiful and should be worth a pretty penny!

  2. Must be a record for a Raffle Quilt top being made! No waiting for everyone to get their blocks submitted like in a guild.

  3. SOOOOO cute! I think I've seen that pattern. Did you say it was in a magazine? Gotta LOVE Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith.

    My sister, Nancy, lives in Parker (a suburb of Denver) and I keep thinking I'll visit their shop if I ever go to see her!

  4. Very nice!! Are the top quaters of the hearts curve pieced, or fused on top, or just appliqued on?

    I'm sure the will really appreciate your generous gift.


  5. What a lovely quilt. It looks like it would take much longer than a few days to put it together and I hope you raise lots of money with it.

  6. What a darling quilt, Nann! I'm saving this in my ideas file :)

  7. Awesome quilt. Great work!
