A Last Minute Finish

February hasn't been a complete washout as far as quilting goes. As well as the applique melons, I have done this little quilt. It's part of the BQL calendar challenge. The idea is that we attach a printed calendar page to the bottom, but I just like it as a Mini quilt.
I think I'll display them all on the wall together.

I really like this one and think I'll have another go. I'd like it to look a bit more 'random' and mis-matched.

I cant believe that I've kept up with this for 2 whole months!
Roll on March.

My little quilt for the ALQS2 swap has arrived safely all the way from Chile (I've never had a parcel from Chile before!)
Thank you very much Vero, it's beautiful!

Little quilts and applique

As today was the first Saturday of the month, Cardiff Quilters was on.
We have been making tiny quilts to be given to the local Maternity unit for use when babies are lost at birth. Each year we go to a memorial service on Palm Sunday to remember our own little boy and it will be here that I hand the quilts over to the local SANDS ( Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society ) rep ready to be given to grieving parents.

There are more quilts to come in yet, but these are the first batch made by the members at a quilt-in and at home.
They are so beautiful. I'm really thrilled with the efforts made by my friends.

At home, the only quilting progress this week has been more applique blocks. I still haven't decided how many I'm going to make, nor what I'm going to do with them, but for now I'm just enjoying the journey.
