A Flurry of Finishes.

It's been a busy week of quilting donated tops and this first fabulous hexagon top was made by Jan Lock and the binding fabric was donated by Vikki and Lauris Hope (Vic)
The Somerville Stitchers (Vic) donated this pretty purple and teal top in a Disappearing 9 Patch design.
This large quilt was made from floral squares cut to 5 inches and it's an older UFO so it's good to have it ready to donate. 
Margaret Fleming (Vic) donated the lovely bright top .
This first lovely QAYG quilt was made from blocks donated by Marie Lee and the Victorian Quilter's Association. 

This second QAYG quilt also included blocks from Mary Anne Rooney (Vic) and the "fox" blocks were donated by Maia Butler from NSW. 


Jan Rhodes and the Sunnybank Quilters from Qld donated the next lovely UFO top which I finished as a baby play mat.

Lynne Kempnich from Tasmania also donated a cute baby quilt top she had started and I button hole stitched around all of the fused appliqued pieces and finished it for another cute play mat for a baby. 

 

This last top was also donated by the Somerville Stitchers (Vic) and it's another lovely quilt for a child.
Thank you so much for your generous support everyone. 
Hugs, Jan Mac

A Flurry of Finishes.

I have been busy finishing as many  donations as possible before the organisations close to donations over the Christmas break and I wanted to make room for more finishes. I finished 4 baby burp cloths.
This circular top was donated by Jan Rhodes and the Sunnybank Quilters from Qld and I finished it as a baby play mat but it  might have started out to be a circular tablecloth. 
More teddies received their new knitted jumpers. 
Laurel Box and the Stitching Sisters from Berwick (Vic) donated the next top.
Cathy Bruton  (Vic) donated the next pretty floral quilt top, batting and backing.
Marie Lee and the Victorian Quilter's Association donated the next quilt top which had been basted for quilting. 
Cathy Bruton  (Vic) donated the cute cot quilt top with a seaside theme and I found a cute whale print flannelette which I used for the backing.
The Stitching Sisters donated the next pretty top.
Marie Lee and the Victorian Quilter's Association donated the next beautiful top which had been basted for quilting too.
Robin Walker and the Fishbowler Sewists from Tasmania donated the next 3 tops. 


Lyz Kershaw (Vic) donated the next cute top for a child. 
The next top was also from the Fishbowler Sewists. 
Lots of finishes and more to come soon.
