Kids' Quilts-Bee

Today, I spent some time with some wonderful ladies from our guild. It was a rainy, muddy day, so it was good to be indoors making quilts for charity! There were many quilts in many stages to work on. Here is Elaine tying one on! Actually, she and I worked together on this quilt.

It was a very thick quilt that someone had pieced with corduroy, and would have been a challenge to quilt with batting, so we tied this one with a flannel backing. I think it would be a great quilt for a boy. The triangles were like little pockets, great place to park little toy cars, I'd imagine!

Others machine quilted:

and others pieced new tops:

After lunch, Linda gave us a demo of Kaye Wood's "6 Hour quilt". This is a quick method to make children's quilts for charity and a great way to use up scraps from other quilts.

That is one of the things I miss from the states is getting together with other quilters to make doantion/charity quilts. Looks like a lot of fun!
