Chemo Quilts by the Elgin Piecemakers

The Elgin Piecemakers had their monthly meeting last night and, as usual, there was lots of eye candy!

Here are the teal and brown blocks that everyone made for this month's chemo quilt.  There are still two more blocks to be handed in before they are sashed and made into a quilt top.

This is the chemo quilt that Pat and I made at our last quilting day. Pat did the binding this past week. It will be delivered to the hospital soon. The fabric was donated by Pam at Mad About Patchwork.  Thanks, Pam!

Pat made this label for our quilt.

This quilt top is ready to be quilted.  I made the great granny square block.

Joanne and Beth just need to finish hand sewing the binding on this bento box quilt and it will be ready for a chemo patient.

Jacqui and her partner made this quilt--there is a second one just like it!  It needs some hand sewing on the binding done too.

One of our members had a wonderful call from a VON nurse with the story of one of her patients who received one of our quilts. It is so nice to know that our quilts are appreciated and used!

I finished my aunt's quilt and it was delivered to her this week. You can see the quilting quite well in this picture.

Here is a peek at my progress on my next project--a bricks and stepping stones quilt for another family member.

This chubby squirrel was looking at me while having a snack the other day.
I am off to do some more sewing this evening. I am making a project from some leftovers.  Come back later this weekend for pictures.


  1. Delicious eye candy!
    Do you have daffodils at your house already?!

  2. Looks like you're a busy group -- those quilts are gorgeous!

  3. What an accomplished group you Piecemakers are! So many yummies to see today, Gail, including your own. Loved the share. Happy Easter Blessings to you ~
