Helping Others

Part of the reason I love being a quilter is that is allows me the opportunity to use my creativity and sewing skills to brighten people's lives and to provide them with a symbol of love and comfort.

Bushfire Quilt Top

This is the 25 block quilt top that I sent to Tia for the Bushfire Quilt Project.

Here is the signature square with some kind words for the recipients.

Busfire Quilt Top Signature Block

These are the 3 blocks I made for Project Improv.

Project Improv - Red, Aqua

Project Improv - Green, Blue

Project Improv - Pink, Orange

They will be assembled into charity quilts with other blocks created in one of the three colourways. I can't wait to see the finished quilts. They will definitely spread some happiness.

Wow! Your quilt top and your Improv blocks are great! I really like the hummingbird fabric too!

Sarah said...

thanks you! I love how the stars turned out. I'd like to make one for myself, or a gift.

Sarah! Your star quilt block is stunning! Your Project Improv blocks are even better! You are a clever chickadee!

Lovely colours, I adore those stars! I'm also making quilts and collecting some for my sewing group to finish for the Bushfire relief. I've got six on the go, let's hope we finish them this weekend!
cheers, Taccolina (of Posted Stitches as well)
