Another mini pop up quilt show

The year is just flying by so quickly and there just not enough hours in the day. This is the first year that I have not done Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt. I still have a couple to quilt from the previous year.

Yesterday I delivered 13 more quilts to the local women's shelter. I focused on boys quilts because they always run a little short of those. 

I also made a little video of the pop up quilt show.

I was also very happy to talk to some ladies who attend classes at Stewarts Sewing Machine Centre here in Devonport and tell them about Bridie's Blossoms and the quilts I make for the women's shelter. I am very pleased and excited to report that we will work together one day a month next year on making quilts for the shelter. Thank you Andrea Broos for giving me the opportunity to do this .This photo I have "borrowed" from Andrea. Some of you may recognize that this quilt was stitched using the lovely 14th Anniversary set of deigns that were available from BFC Creations.

I went for another of my scheduled check ups two weeks ago and I am very pleased and thankful to report  that everything was all fine. Next one is scheduled in 4 months time. Whilst I was at the hospital I also delivered some more of my Bridie's Blossoms early miscarriage keepsake packages.

  1. You still amaze me. Those quilts are just lovely. Your choice of embroidery on each quilt is sometimes surprising, but always wonderful. I so wish I had your energy.

  2. I know the recipients of these thoughts/gifts appreciate it, even if they don't say so. I had 3 miscarriages and the suffering is more than many imagine. Your charity quilts are beautiful as well.
