One of the members of my women's Circle from church forwarded an interesting flyer. She's somehow connected with the hospital's women's auxiliary, and it turns out that there are more poor people in our area than I was aware of. This flyer concerned needy moms of very young children, and was requesting that people send 10-15 items of one size somewhere between 6 months and 18 months, if I remember correctly, either new or used and clean, wrapped in a blanket and tied securely, labeled "Boy" or "Girl" and what size. We have so many grandmothers in our group that it seems like an excellent project for us.
I offered to make two baby quilts and today I pieced the blocks for one of them. Here they are on the wall, and sixty-four more squares are cut to make a border. I had such a good time today working on this. The fabrics are all Westminster scraps with plain white. I think I'll bind it in aqua and tie it with aqua floss; I think it is pretty gender-neutral, don't you?
