squash blossom baby quilt

Squash Blossom Quilt by Salty Oat
For many years, I was a member of do. Good Stitches, an online charity quilting bee. I made a number of quilts with the help of my bee mates, all of which were donated to my locals chapters of Project Linus in both North Carolina and New Hampshire. Earlier this year, I realized my schedule no longer had room for the monthly commitment, so I made the tough decision to step down from the group. Before I did, however, I had one last quilt to finish. 
This Squash Blossom baby quilt was created with blocks from members of the Bliss Circle, using this tutorial by Tales of Cloth. I asked for blocks which featured olive green with peach centers, inspired by the colors in this photo
I really love both the color combo and the block pattern, and would love to use both again in future quilts. 
A long-stashed Aneela Hoey print from the Little Apples collection was the perfect backing for the quilt, as it had pops of both light pink and olive green.

Though I'm no longer a member of do. Good Stitches, my charity sewing will definitely continue. Do you have any favorite organizations you like to donate quilts to?
