End World Hunger Now - Finishing Touch


My "End World Hunger Now" quilt is finished and ready to go off to the show.
I have a bag full of these little "worry people" that I purchased for a project several years ago. They came to me in small bags of 50, each bag had a tiny piece of paper inside with the first name of the maker. I love that each artist makes a different style and each little "worry doll" is an individual.

I glued them in place, then reinforced them with embroidery floss. The glue I use is called "The Ultimate". I get it at Hobby Lobby. I like it because it is odorless, but very strong. I use it for everything, and I have never yet had it fail.

The background fabric is a piece I discharged outside in the winter using a spray bottle filled with bleach solution. I hoped for a more crystalline effect, but even though it did not turn out as I hoped - I have used this fabric in a number of different applications.

Your finished quilt is wonderful! And to think you used mostly scraps and items left over from previous projects (and your own precious time!) makes it even more appropriate. Thank you for sharing.
