PQ 10.3 Bigger Than a Breadbox - To Feed a Soul

Bigger than a Breadbox ... HMMM ... I had lots of ideas rising up in my brain, but many of them were only half-baked. I didn't have enough fusible left for some of my ideas, so I kept on thinking.

Monday evening was our local Quilt Guild meeting. This month we were aiming to sew quilts for our charities ... OOH! Charity is bigger than a breadbox - wrapping someone in a quilt made with love? 
I picked up a bundle of fabrics and started sewing them together. I didn't get the top finished that evening, but Tuesday I got it  sewn together. I pulled other fabrics out of my stash to make the back. There were three blocks left over from the front, so I designed a fun back for the quilt. Wednesday it was put on the frame and I quilted it.

I quilted it with swirls because of the circles in the main print and the swirls in the coral fabric found in the four patches.
  I bound it on Thursday. Thankfully I had a fabric that worked for the binding!
The back has become a wonderful, modern quilt in it's own right. I like how the four patch almost becomes a heart when set on point.
This quilt will feed a child's soul while they are in need.
