Finishing and Giving

Binding at the ready



It took a total of 90 minutes to complete binding this quilt by machine. It's destined for a nursing home and industrial washing. Needs to be sturdy.


The strips of made fabric at the sides of the blue trees was an early trial at made fabric. Full story here


On Tuesday a group of us delivered a dozen quilts to an Aged Care facility. The residents and a few family that were there thanked us with lots of smiles.



Fredia and I collaborated on this quilt and we handed it to a family member for her loved one. Sometimes it's nice to know where your work goes. I don't participate in Community Quilts for acknowledgement but to use my skills for caring.

Still stitching scraps together in lights don't know where it's going yet.  Do you always have a plan when you start a quilt?

I really like that top quilt, it's like a picture. I am sure the residents and their families really appreciate seeing who has made their quilts too

I bet the quilts are greatly appreciated by the recipients! And it just feels good to share quilts with others.

The picture quilt is so interesting.. Like a beautiful dream. You know how much I love that bold one. Those quilts will bring great cosy comfort to those who use them. I think it's fun that you are seeing your blocks without a plan, then there's more room for ideas to grow.

Oh Terry your quilts are going to be so well loved and used I reckon! No I don't have a plan when quilting as yet as I'm not experienced enough but I'm sure I will one day...
