I have quilts from Jazz to share with you today.
“Jo, thank you for sending these flimsies and parts to me to finish. The first one is the embroidered, red, white, and blue ABC blocks you showed in a previous post. I fashioned them into a children’s quilt with the squares in a field of blue with white stars and added the red and white stripes.
I batted it with the batting you provided and backed it with a creamy white and more stars and stripes.
The blue HSTs and bars are from a bag of (what else?) blue HSTs you sent me.
I added some assorted scraps given to me by some of your big-hearted readers and a light blue flannel back.
I’ve never quilted a full panel like this one from Terri of NE is just so cute!… I just outlined the characters in the appropriate colors and backed it with flannel from Holly from IN — just the perfect thing, don’t you think?
All these quilts are between 36″ and 45″ squares and will go to the newborn nurseries of Ben Taub and LBJ Hospitals, of the Harris County (Houston) Texas hospital system.”
The hospitals are recently requesting wheelchair quilts for adults, too, so I’ll be sending along pictures of these soon.
My gratitude is to all your generous donors who help me continue this endeavor by sending me their scraps, tops, and backs.”
Thanks so much for your hard work on these Jazz. I think they all turned out great and will make their recipients really happy.
