    My First Snuggle Quilts for 2015

    My wonderful DD and I started working on these on Boxing Day, the embroideries were already made and we put three together in 2 days then she went home and I worked on the other three. All quilted by me on my Pfaff 3.0. They will be used at our local hospital for sick children.

    All the fabric came from my stash, I am really trying to use what I have.

    Thanks for looking

    MiraB ... as always some exceptional quilts made by you and your DD!
    For picking fabrics just from your stash, you sure have come up with some great combos with your embroideries. Do you pick the fabrics before you do the embroideries? Or make them first and then shop your stash for the go-withs?

    Really is hard to decide which I like the most as they each are unique in their own way.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! on your work and generosity that is sure to bring some sunshine into a little one and their family's life, during a difficult time!

    Very cute quilts for children. I forget that Queensland can get cold in June and a quilt might just be the thing for a sick child.

    QuiltE I make the embroideries first then go in search of fabric to match, it makes for some interesting combo. I did have the plane and boat fabric so those two were easy. I also pieced the backgrounds for the Monsters as I had a lot of neutral strings and small squares and didn't know what to do with them.

    thank you everyone for your kind words

    What wonderful quilts. You will make some children a lot more comfortable. And I'm sure they and their parents will appreciate all the hard work, thought and effort that goes into your amazing quilts. Hats off to you and your daughter for your generosity and spirit.
