Little Quilt Top


Over the next wee while, some of my P &; Q Group are making small quilts for ( cots, cribs and little beds ), soft balls, fabric books, wall hangings and other small items for The Ruel Foundation. If you look at the site and click on News you will read about the first quilt there. My next door neighbour Liz works for the Foundation and she and her husband and 3 teenage daughters recently spent 3 weeks in the Philippines helping at the children's home. Today I made my first very bright cot quilt top for them. I will make both sides interesting. They don't really need the warmth just the colour and something on the walls and something to distract the wee kids who own absolutely nothing. Liz or David will transport our contributions when they next go up there, so we know they will arrive.
* Hi Dale, I didn't know that Kiwifruit even grew in your area. Please keep eating the ones with the Zespri stickers.
* I hope your opening of Pompom Rouge went well Kirsty.
