Peace


Peace
40 x 60

It will be donated to either  Wrap-A-Smile  or   Quilts Beyond Borders. 




This is made mostly of leftover Happy Blocks with peace signs from a quilt I made my brother years ago (maybe 2013?) and some star blocks leftover from who knows what - probably patriotic Happy Block quilt. 

I pieced together leftover batting with zig zag stitches. 

The backing and binding is some calico from the thrift store.  I found a couple of yards for 95 cents - brand new, never used.  I know it was old because it was only 36 inches wide.  I remember those days! 


I quilted it on my DSM with loops and three petaled flowers.
