A donation to P.I.C.U.

I found a small piece of fabric that I though would make a CuTe baby cover. 
Our local & regional hospital is always in need of blankets for their PICU unit.
Paediatrics Intensive Care Unit.
This one measures 24 inch x 30 inch & will be a cot quilt.

A GiFT for a NeW BuB

A work colleague of DD#2 is expecting her first child. 
I'm always happy to donate a "fabric panel" for a floor playtime quilt because I don't have to invest too much of my time or $$. 
Of course I'd always MaKe a quilt for a close friend of hers at any time.
DD#2 chose this design because although not knowing this colleague very well, thought it suited her personality & was what she would like.
I chose a bright green spot fabric for the backing & orange spots for the binding.
I quilted simple flowers over the center but added "stars" to the borders.
I'm happy with how it turned out so I hope Mum-to-be- will like it too.

FNwF UpDaTeD

The flimsy I worked on at FNwF is now finished AnD  
I've even made the binding to match. 
It great to donate a quilt top BuT even better to get items out of my cubbyhole.
This flimsy measures 40 inch x 60 inch.

A Day/Night of Sewing

 For FNwF I actually started in the afternoon by loading a quilt on Teena. 
I tried out a new to me design & quite liked it.
You can't see it very well but once it's finished I'll take a better pic...📸
In the evening I started the blanket stitch on the project I was working on earlier.
I was gifted these arches from our Community donations pile & as I didn't have the time or inclination to needle turn them all, I chose a quicker method. 
After the adhesive paper was pressed to each arch... I trimmed them to size... laid them onto the background & into the ring pattern. 
Stitching began & continued until all pieces were stitched down.
It turned into a LaTe night... 😉 but I got it finished.
I hope you had an enjoyable & successful night too.
I'll be over to visit over the weekend to check out what you worked on.
Until then... take care...
