Anyway, the past few days I've been putting together a small quilt to send to Brownwood Quilter's Guild in Texas. John's cousin Benita P. is the current president of this very active quilting group. As part of their community outreach,they donate baby quilts to local hospitals.
To much is given much is expected and we have been given much.
I put together this quilt top (45" x 55") to send to her; I emailed last week to make sure someone there would be able to machine quilt and bind it. I used only fabrics I brought with me since the cost of cotton fabrics here is near prohibitive (see previous post "Conversion Fever").
I don't think this is my best work, but it has so many colors and designs I'm hoping a toddler will enjoy having it as much as I've enjoyed putting it together.
This is the first time I've used pinwheels much less put pinwheels and four-patch squares together! Fortunately, the Brownwood Quilter's don't demand perfection, just patchwork made with love.
Quilts made for others is where it's at.
