Top Day

I've had some beautiful quilt tops donated recently and I'm getting them quilted as quickly as possible so that they can be given to people needing some comfort at Christmas time. Even though it will be too warm for quilts to be used I know that the recipients will appreciate the gift of a hug.
The first top was made and donated by Gina W. (Vic) and it will be a lovely quilt for a man as it's often hard to get enough quilts for boys and men as most of us have plenty of florals and pastels colours in our stashes.
Sue V. (Vic) also been very busy again and has donated 7 beautiful quilt tops and the pretty floral quilt is the first one I've finished so far.
The last quilt was made from donated string-pieced blocks sent from a blog supporter in Holland and I have enough to put together for another quilt too. I was thinking of adding a border to this top but it was large enough without and I didn't have anything which looked good enough so a bright binding has finished it off.
I have more to work on today so I hope to have more finished quilts to show very soon.
Have a good day and a very big thank you to everyone who has helped with these quilt appeals.
Hugs, Jan Mac
