Quilts out and in

Some while ago, I was contacted by Chloe, who lives abroad and wanted to make some quilts for Linus.  Her question was, would I accept them from her?  Of course, the answer was a resounding yes, please!  Well, it's taken a while to get them delivered (via a local friend) but yesterday they arrived safely, and boy, was it worth the wait!

Here are the three cute little prem quilts, made from gorgeous Easter fabric and Paddington fabric.  Perfect for new babies.  Thank you so much for making these quilts, Chloe, they are perfect!

Recently I was contacted by Mary, from Surestart, to see if they could have quilts to give out to the children they work with.  I was happy to say yes, and so met her outside Frankie and Benny's at Meridian (lots of parking there, and it's near her home).  Here we are with a quilt Paula made.  It clashes a bit with my coat!

And I just had to share this beauty with you.  Paula put it together (she is tireless!) but lots of people made some of these scrappy blocks.  It looks so bright and cheerful, and is a good size for a teenage boy.  Many thanks to Paula, Chloe and all the people who have worked for Linus this month!
