“I wanted to share a couple of baby quilts that I finished over the weekend. Back in March Saint Hilary’s had an Airing of the Quilts fundraiser. A lady at the event picked up my card and said she would contact me later. Later arrived and she needed two baby quilts for grandkids. a boy and a girl. I went through tops I had to let her choose as well as some panels. She saw the two panels from Elizabeth B. in FL and said I like those two. The panels were 24 x 42 and had not been trimmed carefully. I told her I could add borders to the sides and make them larger. We had a plan. I started looking for border fabric in the boxes from Elizabeth and found what I was looking for.
I found the striped fabric to coordinate with the jungle panel and the circle print to go with the circus print.
Next… I needed backing and there staring at me was a beautiful cut from Katy P. in WI. There was enough for both quilts. I used bone-colored thread on both of them.
The jungle panel got a stipple motif and the circus panel got the circle meander motif.
Nancy was thrilled with the quilts and is making a donation to Saint Hilary’s for them. Win-win-win. Thank you, Jo, Elizabeth, and Katy for all your support and contributions to make these special blankets.”
YAHOO!! I love hearing that donations are going to places that need them. Fabulous work Ray and many thanks to Elizabeth and Katy too!!
