Debbie and the Cuddle Care Committee did a fabulous job preparing for this day! Donated fabrics, pre-cut in 4 1/2″ strips, were grouped by colors to be made into nine patches to be sewn with pre-cut white 12-inch squares to make quilt tops for the babies and children at Norton’s Hospital. Members came ready to work. Some were pressers, some were cutters, some were pinners, some were sewers, some were runners. It was a truly collaborative effort. Take a look at these happy worker bees and a couple finished tops!
Sherry, our newest member, jumped right in to help with the ironing.
Debbie shared this adorable baby quilt she made for a relative. Each square is paper pieced! Certainly not a project for a beginner!
Sandy brought in a bag made using the same process as a rag quilt. Notice the way the horses were fussy cut and alternated with the solids.
At our next meeting on February 1, Pam will guide us through a quick technique for making 8 half-square triangles.
