    The first two quilts are my baby bargellos done years ago and they are from Bonnie Hunter's patterns @ the Quiltville site. Thanks to Bonnie for her great contribution to quilters and quilting everywhere!

    This next quilt is preemie #1 done two days ago and is a Medallion Quilt that became popular after 1840. They were usually done by well-to-do families because the center panels were imported from France or England. I chose the Medallion style because it's quick to assemble. Camera doesn't show the true color but the next picture does.

    Did this one yesterday. It came together quickly using a printed panel for the ctr and in the stash also found two panels of hearts for a border. Wasn't quite enough so had to put in the four cornerstones. The pieced blocks were UFO's put to good use here. Used all but 6. Paid no attn to color placement. They were done a long time ago. The 4-patches for the corners were premade too as I like to keep them handy for projects like this. All these are for Project Linus and will go to Haiti. Contact the closest chapter of PL if you have any for their 10K quilt drive.

    Hope I've inspired you to make some preemies to help the babies. Takes 3-4 hrs to do one. Next I'll be sandwiching them, HQ and binding. Will do one more preemie before shipping. The babies have noone else but us!! lol. Thanks everyone for looking and your kind words! :D :D
