Charity recap

A couple of weeks ago Marg and I got together to package up all of the baby quilts and baby hats that we had made to deliver to a lady who is connected with the Silent Children's Mission. Here's a visual list of the quilts.

One of the few pre-printed panels we have.

Easy peasy squares.

This star quilt is a free pattern from Swim, Bike, Quilt blog.
I'm sorry you can't see the teddy bear that Marg quilted in the star.

The second star quilt.

One of what I call 'the ice cream quilt.'

The second 'ice cream quilt.'

The refreshing gingham quilt.

The ducky quilt.

That's it for this year. I didn't count the hats but there may have been about a hundred of them.

Stitching Among Friends Quilt Show - Part Two

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!

Here's a close-up of the various embroidery stitches the quilter used.

Different use of fabric - strips.


Nine patch quilts are always a pleasure to view.

There were quite a few hand quilted quilts.

You don't see many cathedral window quilts being made these days.

There was a lot of work in the applique.

Beading, buttons and 3D flowers.

This won the Viewers' Choice award for 2015.

A slightly different view.

That's it, that's all. Have a great weekend.

Stitching Among Friends Quilt Show - Part One

On June 10th and 11th, the Quilting Corners Guild of Alliston, Ontario held their fifth quilt show. These are some of the quilts that were in the show. I hope you find some inspiration and joy in viewing them.

It appears as if there are a few cat lovers in this guild.

What a fun quilt.

Fun details on these little girls.

A fun quilt.

Sunbonnet Sue with a difference.

That's it for today. I'll post the rest of the photos tomorrow.
