Quilting in the Garage and Baby Blankets

We had a garage day this past Saturday and I was fine to go to this one.  The last one, I had stomach flu and had to cancel.

So, what did we all work on?  Lois finished her commission quilt and how lovely it turned out!
 Darlene worked on her La Passacalgia EPP project.
Lois was asking for help laying out a new project.  LOL .... we sure had her changing this and that, but she went home with a layout.  This is only one portion of the top.
I worked on sewing a sleeve onto another quilt, but forgot to take a photo.   My camera was out for taking a photo, but somehow I got distracted.   LOL .... that is not hard when there is so much inspiration going around the table in the garage.  Karin worked on blocks (oops, no photo of them either) that she was working on this past fall before she went to Florida for the winter.  It was a fun day.  Lots got done and we all went home happy. 

Baby blankets.  After getting labels sewn on and more machine quilting done to these blankets ..... they are done and handed in to the NICU at our local hospital.  Five blankets.  Not bad at all for a day of sewing (back in February).  These will give warmth and comfort to five babies and to their parents.  That makes my heart happy.

There is no batting in these blankets.  Flannel on the back and cotton on the front.

Have a great day!

If I could sew in a garage and turn out quilts like your quilting buddies did, I'd make that my normal sewing spot! Sweet baby blankets. What a loving gift from the heart.
