More progress on our community quilts ...

We sorted (and swapped) the many Serendipity Circles blocks into broad colour groups last week ... this cool collection is now trimmed, sized up and a layout plan has been made by Elaine W,  ready for quilt top construction at our October sewing day.
Some of a warmer stack, put together by Jill ... 70s Circles?

Many hands have transformed this jungle fabric panel into a quilt. We didn't think it would be improved by being cut up, so Susan added the border, Dawn quilted it with a large meander and variegated thread, then Pat sewed down the binding and added the label.

The fabric was donated by an acquaintance of a friend of one our group members when she was having a clear-out ... none of us knows Anne, but we are grateful for her gift, as the recipient will be.

These simply pieced and beautifully hand quilted, soft little quilts were made by Lorraine K.  They will be donated to the Blankets of Love project that offers tiny quilts to the families of babies who die in the perinatal period, as a memento, or a wrap.
