Quilts for Looked After Children

Paula and I had a lovely ride out to Bingham yesterday to meet Judy from Fostering Futures.  (There is currently a vacancy for a Linus rep in Nottingham, so I was her nearest coordinator.)  Bingham is a delightful market town, and as you can see, the weather was lovely, and so were the quilts!  This one was made from a lot of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and professionally longarmed!  What generous people there are out there!  Judy gave me a list of ages of the children fostered by her group, and there are several teenagers, so this big quilt will find a suitable home. 
Judy has two children with her at the moment, and they were lucky enough to be able to choose for themselves from the 31 quilts we took.  Judy reports that they were delighted with their quilts, and apart from putting them straight onto their beds, have great plans for future play, starting with a tea party on quilts.  Perfect!
