Fulk Family Quilt #2: Baby Size!

I'm happy to show you the second of the Fulk Family quilts (see the first here), a baby version for Helen's youngest son Henry who is just a few months old now. This quilt was made with donated blocks for the original quilt, and ended up at 36" x 48" which is the perfect crib size! It should be big enough to grow with him well into his toddler / preschool years.

Longarm quilting services were generously donated by StarlitQuilts in Washington, U.S. Star did a fantastic job, the quilt turned out so soft and crinkly after being washed :)

I'd like to say a big thanks again to everyone who donated blocks, backing, binding, quilting, time, energy, love, etc. to make these quilts happen after the unexpected death of Helens husband. She absolutely loves them and will cherish them forever!

Finished Fulk Family Charity Quilt

Hello all, and Happy August! By now, I'm sure many of you have seen on either Facebook or Instagram that the Fulk Family Quilt is finished, so I wanted to hop on here and share some final images of the finished quilt with you all as well.

If you're just finding out about this charity quilt effort, you can read my original post here. I shared the hope of making a quilt for Helen Fulk after her husband unexpectedly passed away in June with people across social media and the response was overwhelming!

The finished quilt is 72" x 84" and made from 12" reverse sawtooth blocks (free tutorial by suzyquilts). I chose blue, green, and teal mixed with low volume fabrics when I put out a call for blocks. I think the final look is really cohesive considering they came from so many different quilters!

A big thank you to everyone involved in this process. From block making, to donating binding, backing, batting, quilting services, etc! It was a huge group effort that stretched from the U.S. to Canada. It would not have come together so quickly if it weren't for all of you.

Longarm quilting, batting, and binding services provided by Megan McCord. 

Blocks donated by 17 quilters from the U.S. and Canada. 

Binding donated by SimplyMackbeth on Etsy. Backing donated by Karen Denoya. 

Quilt top was pieced by me :)

The label was purchased from BorderCityQuilts on Etsy, where I get all of my printed quilt labels. She has so many designs to choose from and is very open to custom orders!

This quilt was gifted to Helen and her sons a couple days ago. She was very happy to receive it and wanted to make sure I passed on her thanks to everyone involved.

Thank you again!
