What does Love look like??

This is the 8th year Sarah at "Confessions of a Fabric Addict" is hosting the "Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge....and my 3rd Fourth year (lost track and just realized I've done 4 years!).....
well, anyway...........it is a great cause......Sarah has several charities to choose from so if you would like to help out......click on the link below or the one on my side bar...........

This year I made a Transformers Quilt which I will be donating to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids......you can read about this wonderful non profit Organization at Sarah's blog.....


You can see I had a lot of help from my kitty Cali....
I used some Transformers fabric I found at a second hand store to make some hourglass blocks then added sashing which actually made the blocks look more like box kites.........then I added some autobot and decepticon badges with my embroidery machine and then did FMQ with some variegated quilting thread throughout.   






 I used colored bobbin thread so that the back of the quilt would show the badges too.   Over all I was pretty pleased with how the quilt turned out.  It is about 52 x 52..........and the blue is really more vibrant than the photos show.......I hope it will make some child happy as well as keep him warm.........
 
Cali liked the finish too!

That looks so nice and I KNOW that some child is going to love that quilt. It is such a great cause. Well done on all the hourglass blocks.
