I have two baby quilts to share with you today. Both of them were put together by Jazz.
“Hi, Jo. I’m really loving all the fabric and scraps you and your fans have shared with me. I dropped off a dozen baby quilts at the newborn nursery at Harris Health last week and now they’re loving all your generosity, too.
Here are two more I recently finished. The pink/maroon one is about 38” x 38”, made with flannel, Minky, and satin. It’s the richly colored yardage that inspired the front.
As much as I love…
designing, cutting, piecing, and creating from scraps, Joann in San Francisco Bay’s tops are my all-time favorites to work on. Her quilts are exquisitely professional and gorgeous. She rouses me to do better and more with my own designs. Here is an example that finished at 36” x 36”, the best size for a new baby. I batted it lightly with two layers of white flannel your reader Sarah Wolfe donated.
I used a solid yellow to bind it and backed it with my light blue flannel. (I use a lot of flannel for the new babies.)
I am holding onto a few more tops by Joann, enjoying thinking about how to finish them. You’ll see soon.
I feel like I’ve found my mission in providing baby quilts to our county hospital’s nurseries. Although they are chronically in need, they provide world-class care to all comers. I’m pleased to be able to be part of their giving and I am grateful to you and your fans who make it possible.”
WOW. I just love seeing these. I so appreciate all the donations that you have been sending Jazz’s way. She does such a marvelous job with finishing these up. I just love her enthusiasm!!
