Dancing Animals

This is another panel which gives opportunity to practice quilting, but the main purpose is to take it to our local (and wonderful) children's hospital. 

I have the top done of the Nativity quilt and will put borders on it before quilting, just 2-3" of black to set off the colored 'glass' part. I've black batting, thread, and no more excuses. Pictures later.

Progress on Nativity

Life keeps pounding away making time to quilt a serious issue, but there is some progress on this nativity quilt. Here is part of Joseph. The color in the photo isn't perfectly accurate, but it does show the super fabric I found in my stash for his beard! Next is the Baby Jesus and straw for His bed, then it will be ready to quilt.

I've come up with fresh ideas for the pattern for this one and am hoping to have it ready soon. 

This Saturday, I'm involved in a Quilts of Valour (Canada) Sewing for Soldiers day. From 9-5 about 32 of us will be making quilt tops for veterans and wounded soldiers. It is a labor of love and thanksgiving for all they have done.
