A few months ago, Colleen Redit spoke at our church about her work in India with the Christian Mission Charitable Trust. If you google her name you’ll come up with her web site. I bought one of the elephant wall hangings off their fund raising craft table and have turned it in to a cot quilt for one of my friends 🙂

Proceeds from raffling off this ‘plus’ quilt are going to the NZ Red Cross. I used Lauren Grande’s design of how to put it together.

This quilt is destined for the studio wing of the rest home and is based on a photo composition from our back lawn looking over toward Mount Maungatautari. The quilt sky is made of crazy log cabin patches with hand embroidery embellishment. My dilemma was then how do I machine quilt it to the wadding and backing with embroidery all over it. My solution was to ignore the embellishment and machine quilt over it. Now there is lots of texture and it’s ready to hang.
