Fan Faire BOM Update

I have been busy working on a very special art quilt so I got behind on our Guild’s Fan Faire Quilt-a-long.  I spent the weekend cutting and piecing and now I am all caught up and waiting for our new blocks in January

Nov ALYoF Goal

At our October guild meeting I found out that we are making baby quilts for Our Lady of Grace.  I have started piecing HSTs together.  I would like to finish my donation quilt as my November goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.

Help for premature babies in the NIC Unit

2013AUGSewDay

Today members of our Modern Quilt Guild got together for a sew day.  Some worked on their own projects and others worked together to make quilted incubator covers for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Royal Alex Hospital.   These covers help block out the light to make for a more relaxing/soothing rest for the little ones inside.  I was on quilt duty.  I managed to quilt enough pieces for 2 covers.  One with an overall grid pattern and the other with a large improvised  baptiste fan design.  I hope we get to see how they look when they are put to use.
