    My patchwork group took on the task of making quilts for the childrens ward of our local hospital. Altogether we made over 30 single bed quilts.
    Here are the photos of the quilts I have made since August.
    I especially like the flower faces which I saw on this board, I hope the original maker likes my version. I embroidered butterflies in each block, not sure if you can see them
    Bear with me as there are a lot of photos

    Awesome! You have been very productive. My guild is making quilts for the Neonatal Intensive Care unit at our local hospital. They give a quilt or receiving blanket to each baby when they graduate! Isn't it fun making quilts you know will wrap a little one in love?

    Yes Jane he certainly is a ham, or the whole pig :roll: :roll: but he is the most supportive husband so I guess I will keep him.

    These quilts will belong the the hospital, we are about to start making small quilts for the Royal Flying Doctor Service which ferries injured or sick people from remote parts of Australia to major hospitals. These quilts will be used for small children to cuddle up to and keep and maybe make their journey a little less frightening.
    I also support a group called Blankets of Love who make small quilts for women who have suffered miscarriages or still births. These little quilts are only 26 inches and I make about 40 each year.
    My husband calls my sewing room the Factory Floor (don't know why) :wink:
    I can actually see holes in the stash,,

    You are to be complimented of what you have done, they each reflect a lot of caring and giving of your time. I tip my hat to you.
