Caring quilt sewing saturday

Yesterday five ladies came together sewing caring quilts.

We had a lot of fun cutting stripes,

and sewing quilts.

And during this saturday some quilt tops was done

It is always fun coming together like this,
and it feels good making caring quilts
that later will be given away to a child at a hospital.

With big tables put together we also had
the oportunity to baste a big quilt standing up.

And Bentes wonderful flower garden quilt
is now ready to be handquilted.

Saying for today:

The language of friendship
is not words
but meanings.
~Henry David Thoreau

there is nothing nicer than sitting stiching with friends to make quilts for a gift.

what a wonderful big hexie quilt. One day I wish to hand quilt . would be relaxing.

Thanks for a lovely weekend! Since coming home I have put binding on 2 of my care quilts + made one of my kits into blocks - all in all a productive weekend :-)

Så mange fine tepper. Det burgunder-røde og hvite teppet er nesten identisk med et jeg nettopp har sydd til barneavd. på St Olavs. Bilde på bloggen min.
