Cloud Nine

I was out shopping a few weeks ago and 
came across a pattern that I thought would make a great donation quilt.  
It is called Cloud Nine and is by Villa Rosa Designs.  
I decided it would make a couple of great quilts for Margaret's Hope Chest.  

I did one in U of M and one in MSU fabrics

First the MSU 
(of course)

Close up

Then the U of M quilt top

Close up

After working with both the black and the white as backgrounds, 
I like the look using the white much better. 
 I am making a third one for someone special so that will have to be shown later.    
This top goes together so quickly, and finishes at 56 x 70" 
 Perfect donation quilt size.  

I am handing off to the quilter tonight and
 hope to have them back by Monday to bind and enter in the 100 Quilts for Kids. 
 I am going to machine bind as that will go so much more quickly.  
Wish me luck!! 

What is your go to donation quilt pattern??

I actually like the MSU one better ! There's something about the placement of the black fabric that gives it a great punch!! Especially against the white... good placement ( in my mind) of positive and negative spaces! Don't tell my s-i-l , she's a rabid U of M fan even if she now lives down in SC!

two good quilts which I am sure will be appreciated. I am doing my first charity quilt, half square triangles but as it is the first one I have completed struggling to put the binding on.I hand quilted it, now got a couple of sore finger tips! My walking foot that I have had 20 years will not co operate to rang where I bought it and it is going back today, they say it will have seized up which they can repair, fingers crossed they manage as I want to put my 100 tula pink blocks together as soon as it comes back.
