Sprinkles is a Traveling Quilt









These pictures tell a story.  I tested Sue Abrey's quilt design "Sprinkles", then heard about the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge running now at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and decided to donate my version of Sprinkles because it's a nice size for cozying into and with the fabric I used would be good for a young person.  As you can see, my pal Moxie liked it very much, so after doing a stipple quilting and sewing on the binding, Sprinkles got washed and dried and crinkled up beautifully.  I remembered the label, something I don't always do.

Now, Sprinkles is on it's way to the midwest.  
So, from a quilt designer in Great Britain to a quilter in Massachusetts to an organization in Ohio and then, who knows.  
Happy travels, Sprinkles.

Another version is definitely on the agenda.

Thanks, Sue. It was fun.

When I saw the picture of the whole quilt, all I could think of was a pink cherry chip cupcake with vanilla frosting and sprinkles! What a great story for a quilt
