I've been very busy working on these two baby cot quilts and have almost got them finished as tops and then will have to quilt them. No pressure- as long as they are finished by Christmas Day when I see the new babies and the rest of the family.
The tops are pieced and I just have to blanket stitch around the letters before I add the last border to each. I'll stitch them by machine and it's a good way to get used to the new sewing machine. so far I am very impressed with it!
I didn't feel like tackling the blanket stitching last night so I started putting another top together. These blocks were made by members of my Melbourne quilting group and I offered to put them together and then it will be donated. I should get it finished soon and using the floor as my design area does mean I have to keep working on them before the family want to walk there. LOL
I have also sent off 7 quilts, a crocheted blanket and some gifts for the homeless for Christmas. It looks like we are going to have a very hot and dry summer with threats of bush fires again so I plan to get some more donation quilts ready in case they are needed. There have been fires near us already so I hope there is no loss of life this time.
