Our guild is very generous with donating quilts to our community. A few years ago we gave quilts to the hospitals dialysis department and we have seen that they have been well used and in need of new quilts. These are just three of the many that will be make there way over to the hospital soon.
I remember this one was going to be a Bento Box quilt but the Key Lime batik bundle didn’t look very good in that pattern….or so the quilt member who donated this top to the guild said! :) She used the quarter sections of the blocks to create this original design. The panto is Plush.
The last quilt was made using the Bundle of 12 pattern and I used the Feather Curls panto. All the quilts have Dream Blend batting and Ultra Cuddle on the backing. For the record I hate Ultra Cuddle as it is not really meant to be used for quilt backs like Cuddle is, I don’t mind quilting with Cuddle/Minkie. I did a rant on Ultra Cuddle a few months ago and complained about how stretchy it is but that was after the guild ordered two bolts of it! So this week I tackled this icky job to get it over with, the ladies at the guild owe me big time! :)
Great news….the snow is melting!! Its +9’c and the sun is now shining! The snow might be gone by the end of the month if we are lucky!
