I have been a busy little beaver ;-)

with apologies to my two remaining January swap partners SylviaU and Marybeth, I have been busy making up a baby blanket/quilt for the QLD Flood Relief

I had a few scraps left over from my first ever baby quilt and decided to put them to good use.  I wasn't sure I would have enough to make up a complete quilt, but surprise, surprise, I have ;-)

here it is on my design wall (which is really a mattress protector strung up in front of a cupboard)

Here it is ..... all quilted and finished

I am quite pleased with this one ;-)

I made the quilt especially for the QLD Flood Relief effort, hoping to auction it off, and if no bids are received, it will be donated to OzComfortQuilts

I am happy with the way it came together ..........

The quilting is not quite perfect .........

some of the lines are a bit crooked .......

but it was made with love ;-)


My first QAYG square - I have just enough batting left for 3 more squares and will get onto them during the week

I will resume normal programming now, and work on my January blocks ;-)

  1. Hey Cathy,

    No worries. I think that is wonderful that you made a blanket for the Flood Relief charity.

    No rush on the block. It has been -35 deg here all week and I haven't ventured to the Post Office to mail your block. I plan to get it in the post tomorrow or Tuesday.
