Outreach Quilt

On Tuesday night at our first meeting of the year, the Rotary Cutters stitched blocks for an Outreach Project of our Guild (Oranjequilters).  A fellow quilter donated the fabric and we used a technique illustrated by another Group at one of last years' quarterly meetings.  The 12.5" blocks will be cut in 4 and then assembled to form a lap quilt.  It is also linked to the Challenge for the second term.  Afterwards al the finished quilts will be donated to Dewetsdorp's Old Age Home.

This is how the 20 blocks looks thus far:

Baby Shoes

These adorable baby shoes pattern was included as a project in one of the Art of Quilting magazines and I just had to sew a few pairs for Grandson Aiden - now 8 weeks old and 4.5kg.  Using fabric from my stash, it took only a few days to finish.






Aiden at 7 weeks.
