My Quilty Bucket List


The Q&N Quilty Aunties Baby Quilt is done and in the mail to the volunteer quilter!



My March Goal 
for A Year of Lovely Finishes is done!


Here is a close up of the blocks that were made by members of the forum.


Here are is the nice black textural fabric for the outer border
 and pretty pink fabric sent for the binding.


This is the layout that I drew up for this quilt for the approval of the baby mommy-to-be. This one really worked up just like the plan.

Planning and sewing these group quilts is an art of its own.
A pattern needs to be chosen that is availible free online and easy enough for anyone to sew who would like to add a block even if they are new to piecing quilt blocks.

For this quilt we chose the Rail Fence Block  from Quilter's Cache

Fabrics and colors need to be something that enough of us will have in our stashes so that the costs are keep down for volunteers.

I have contributed to the making of many of these group quilts
and everyone of them is sew very special.

It always makes the world feel smaller and cozier when making one of these group quilts to welcome a new baby to our world.

I saw this linky party today and it looks like sew much fun!
