Neither Muddy Nor Murky
Our monthly hand-sewing group made a commitment in the spring that over the summer each of us would make a quilt -- preferably a baby quilt -- for the local hospice, where one of our members is a volunteer.
I made a quilt for an adult male hospice patient at the start of the summer and thought that since I was on summer hours and had more time to sew, that I would make two more hospice quilts. I had bought the Lily and Will fabric to make a quilt that Sherry needed and there was a fair amount of the jelly roll remaining. So I picked up a little yardage and made these two baby quilts for the hospice. The smaller one is big quilted in the center and tied in the rest of it; the larger one is tied. It is sad to think that there is this need; it feels good to be able to do something to help. When our group meets in a couple of weeks, I'll try to get pictures of all of the quilts.
