💛Hope For Ukraine💙 Part 2

These quilts are headed overseas to wrap families of Ukraine with comfort and love! I did the quilting and binding on these four quilts! 
Quilt Info:
Toppers: Cindy (2), Gwyn, Janice
Pattern: Hope from GE Designs
Size: 57" x 77"
Batting: Bosal Poly, Quilters Dream 100% Cotton
Thread: Glide--Egg Nog
Pantograph: Simply Sunflowers ⤵️ from Intelligent Quilting--my favorite pantograph for these quilts, as the sunflower is Ukraine's national flower!!!
These first two quilt tops were made by Cindy! ⤴️⤵️
This lighter colored one was made by Gwyn! ⤵️
This last one was made by Janice! ⤵️
Interesting Info: Gudrun @ GE Designs is working together with Hello Cottons, using her Hope quilt pattern in blues and yellows, the Ukraine flag colors. Hello Cottons has sent 12,000+ quilts to Ukrainian refugees, so far.

The backs of Cindy's two quilts have this solid blue fabric, which I also used for the bindings. I love seeing the sunflower quilting on the solid back!!! ⤵️
Here are both of Cindy's quilts in full!!! ⤴️ ⤵️
Some details of Gwyn's quilt: ⤵️
A pretty yellow butterfly backing, and yellow binding!!! ⤴️ ⤵️
Gwyn's full quilt!!!  ⤵️
Here are details of Janice's quilt!  ⤵️
The backing is a subtle blue print! ⤵️ And navy binding! ⤴️
These quilts have been turned in to GE Designs, and are on their way to Hello Cottons, then on to comfort people overseas! You may recall, my sister and I also made a Hope For Ukraine quilt, blogged about here. They are continuing to collect quilts at GE Designs, more info here. Can you help?

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  2. These are beautiful, great choice of quilting. I love how it shows up so nice on the back.

  3. These are beautiful quilts and I am sure will be well appreciated. Hooray for Gudrun and all she has done for this cause.

  4. So beautiful! Every one of them! It's wonderful that you've so generously given your time to quilt and bind these. As I know, quilting can be the biggest stumbling block for many quilters, so you carrying this burden is a huge gift for everyone. I can imagine how wonderful the reaction will be when each of these is gifted. So much love here! Bless you all for your efforts.

  5. Such cheery quilts which hopefully will help lift spirits too. And what a perfect quilting motif too! All so special.

  12. Each of these quilts is beautiful. You chose such perfect quilting designs too. The colors just speak to me - probably because they are also my collegiate colors.

  14. Cindy is a friend of mine and has a heart for making quilts when a need is made known. She puts a lot of time and effort into her quilts. These are no exception! And thank you for doing the longarm quilting. Bravo, ladies!
