Sunday Sewing

Today was a fun day with time to make a QAYG quilt and I just have the binding left to finish as we had visitors in the afternoon.
I've also received a parcel from Julez from Bacchus Marsh (Vic) and she very generously sent 2 beanies and 10 FQs for the donation quilts. The beanies will be going to the Pine Ridge Reservation as they are in constant need of warm clothing, especially for fostered children and the beanies will be loved. I've also been knitting hats and scarves to donate to them too and will probably take them with me when I fly to the US at the end of the month, and then post them while I'm over there.
I've also found some donated 6.5" squares in crazy patchwork which someone had donated. They all had red backing and batting included and some of them had machine stitching along the seams in the blocks. There are enough for a larger quilt if I use the backing squares as well and I've spent the afternoon unpicking the stitching and then I will join the squares and make one large top instead of a smaller QAYG project. The left over pieces of 6" batting will be used to make larger QAYG squares so nothing will be wasted.
All in all it was a relaxing and yet productive day.
I plan to machine quilt some tops tomorrow so i'll have more to show then.
Until later, Jan Mac

I have been reading your blogs for awhile. I have icon shortcuts on my computer screen. You are an inspiration. I have learned so much about quilt making from you!!!! I located a Project Linus Chapter in my home town and joined last Saturday.
When my father died, he had not know me for a year. I understand.
Take care and please keep blogging.
