Very Snuggly Quilt Making Day

It's always going to be a good day when like minded people come together to sew for a good cause and this Saturday was no exception.  

Very Snuggly Quilts, supported by Victorian Quilters Inc, provides quilts to the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne to children who have long term or terminal illness.  As hospitals are such drab places, these quilts are made with love, to give some colour and life to the room, as well as something of the child's own to cuddle and have with them at all times.

Hearts to be appliqued

Lots of concentration ensured that lots of quilts were being made...

Friendship star blocks are laid out ready for assembly and then neatly stacked when done...

These are simple square in a square blocks, which make up into great 'eye-spy' quilts...

The days statistics rounded out to:  
5 quilts completed
21 Friendship Star blocks assembled
4 centres
201 Square in a square blocks assembled
4 quilts quilted
1 pack of 15 shapes appliqued.

That's not bad going considering there were 19 people in attendance on the day
10 Kilmore members
5 from Heathcote Quilters, 
2 from Lancefield Quilters
and Marie Lee with her friend from Rosebud.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all who support those in need.  Very Snuggly Quilts is a program which is continually supported by Kilmore Quilters - click here:
