Hi all, been very busy making quilts for the rehabilitation unit at Modbury Hospital. The patients here love to receive a quilt when they are in the hospital and my friend dawn and I decided to try to donate one to all who are having a stay at the hospital after a stroke. So far we have given two ladies their quilts and they loved them, I have just finished 4 more and nearly finished another 2 quilts. I love to do this for them but it gets a little expensive having to buy the wadding. I will continue to make them as long as I am able and hoping I can get some reasonable priced wadding some where. The finished quilts are at least 50 inches square and i have posted them below.
While I was sewing the binding on a quilt these two little birds landed on my clothes line. I have not seen them here before and I dont know what they are. If you do know please let me know.
This one is from the Block book by Missouri star.
This one i just made up and is a quilt as you go.
Another I just started to sew and i like the effect of this one. The one below is just a simple 9 patch.

I started this quilt 6 years ago with a block swap from a forum I was in at the time. I made blocks for other forum members in the colour of their choice and they did one for me in my selected colours. Some of the blocks were not what I had wanted so I altered them to suit and made others to get the size of the quilt I wanted.The blocks sat around for ages and then I put them together and it went back in the cupboard. My sister asked if I had a quilt she could buy for her MIL for Mothers Day and I thought of the quilt UFO. She liked it and said her MIL would love it so it was quilted and bound in the same day. Now onto the next UFO, well maybe, I do have a lot I need to do.
