Hospice Quilts 2 and 3

Last night was quilt guild and I received several completed quilts for the next hospice delivery which I plan on doing probably in February.

This first one I am just calling Framed Squares was made by Carol and quilted by myself awhile back.

This Irish Chain quilt was also pieced by Carol and this one was quilted by Nancy. I love the soft colors of this quilt. I know that it will bring comfort to a patient and their family.

I am going to spend part of my day tomorrow sewing labels on all these donated quilts.

I managed to take the time to get a couple of my own table runners quilted today and plan on getting the binding on them tonight so that I can also sit and stitch them down tomorrow after my daughters surgery.

You know quilters are the very nicest people. A customer dropped off a quilt for me to do a little bit ago and knowing my daughter is getting her wisdom teeth out tomorrow brought her a little gift and card and they have never even met her. Talk about nice!!!

I received three additional quilts for hospice last night and I will try and post pictures of them tomorrow.

Sounds like you are piling up the hand sewing projects. With the pain medication that your daughter might be prescribed she may be sleeping most of the day. Do you have a laptop or is your desktop close? Check out http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/ if you get time. Lot's of neat stuff going on. I'm partial to the squares quilt.
