My charity quilt pattern goes to Thailand

About a month ago, my new friend, Jill, from Bangkok, Thailand, asked me for a copy of my Free Charity Quilt pattern. I just received an e-mail from her with this picture attached.

Made from fabrics available in Thailand, Jill cut and pieced this lap-size quilt in just 2.5 hours. She has tied her quilt, but you could also hand or machine quilt it. The organization that will receive Jill's quilt is the Melissa Cosgrove Children's Foundation.

Here is a close-up of the cute animal print that Jill incorporated into her quilt—dogs and cats at the movies—what fun. Thanks, Jill, for sharing your quilt!

If you would like a copy of my FREE lap size charity quilt pattern,  just e-mail me at veronicaquilts@gmail.com and I'd be happy to e-mail it to you. The pattern (right) is "fat quarter friendly" and sews up quickly (Jill worked hers up in 2.5 hours). It uses 7 fat quarters and the finished size is 36" x 48".
