A Special Quilt

Yesterday I pieced these beautiful heart blocks to make a special quilt to donate. These heart blocks were made and donated by a lovely group of Dutch quilters who wanted to donate them to people affected by the devastating floods we had recently. I still have some more to make into quilts and they will be so welcome as many people still don't have permanent accommodation and will love the gift of a quilt.
 I waited until I had enough batting to finish off some more donated blocks and tops and after piecing the top and the backing yesterday I quilted this top as well as 3 others. I still have the bindings to finish off on the other 3 but I'm off to paid work now so hopefully they'll be done tomorrow.
Many thanks, to all of you for your generous donations.
Hugs, Jan Mac

  1. What a beautiful quilt and how kind of these ladies to think of such a far away country. Cherrie
