One of my 2019 Quilting Goals was to make a gender-neutral quilt top to donate to Quilts for Delhi, but a week or so ago I remembered that I had made a quilt top in 2017 that definitely is not “girly.” I was going to use it to practice my quilting skills. Well, I’m not saying that I’m never going to quilt a project that is bigger than a baby quilt, but I much prefer piecing quilts, and I’m itching to do more quilt design when I get EQ8 in a couple months. So, I was happy to send off this quilt top today to Katie (@katikat21 on Instagram).
The pattern is Forest Daybreak by Brenda Ratliff, and it is described as a “great beginner improv project”. It was featured in the May/June 2017 issue of Modern Patchwork, but a PDF pattern is now available for purchase and immediate download.

How awesome to already have something perfect on hand!
Hi Mary! Oooooh, those fabrics! This looks like a project that went together quickly, and it makes a wonderful statement when all together. I love the improv nature of it, and I’ll 100% sure that someone will just love receiving it. I look forward to seeing how Katie quilts. How nice that you had something already complete that can work for a donation. ~smile~ Roseanne
