Donation Bassinet Quilts

I missed the last club meeting so I haven't got photos of show and tell. Instead, I was handed a bag of donation bassinet quilts and woollies for the maternity unit where I work.  The bassinet quilts give a much needed boost of colour to the postnatal rooms and make the place feel a little more homely.  We had run very low on quilts so a few months ago I put a call out to the club.  The response has been amazing and our cupboards are getting full of colour and quilted love!

I'm taking a guess when I say the woollies were knitted by Jane.

The two quilts above were made by Gayleen from leftovers. I love the hand quilted, big stitch circles.

I'm pretty sure the matching kiwi quilts were made by Beatrice. Cute!

These bright batiks were leftovers from Imogen's stash.  Imogen passed away a few years ago, but I think she'd be happy to see her legacy going to the babies.

I'm sorry, I can't remember who made these, but they look like orphan blocks put to good use.

Thanks everyone, the babies will be warm and cosy this winter.
