Earlier this year, Christine, Cathy and I made a double bed quilt for the parents of the second family. Then, we decided to wait to see what other quilts would be needed before proceeding with more quilts. The new family is made up of grandparents, parents and a one year old child, as well as the aunt of the child. The quilt we have already made will be for the parents. (Sorry I don't have a picture of the entire quilt!)
We decided to make an I Spy quilt for the one year old. We each contributed 40 fabrics to the quilt. I supplied the green fabric and Christine supplied the blue. Christine is piecing a flannel back for this quilt and I will likely do the quilting and binding.
(Sorry for the bad lighting...)
I looked through my quilt collection and found a pretty quilt that I have never used. I made it years ago. I decided to gift it to the aunt.
We showed the quilts at our guild meeting and asked if anyone had a quilt or quilt top at home that they could donate for the grandparents. The morning after the meeting, I received an email from Maureen saying that she had a quilt top to donate! Cathy has agreed to quilt it for us once we get some backing. I love my wonderful quilting friends!
