Every year our Fraser Valley Quilters' Guild has a preemie workshop, today was that day... Beckie did a wonderful job machine quilting this preemie quilt she made at home before arriving to the workshop.
At the February meeting these scottie dogs were donated to the program. We make quilts for the nursery at B.C. Children's Hospital for premature newborns.
This is my friend Ethel working on a quilt.

Nancy, Carmie and I worked as a team to put this 4 patch quilt together. Notice the scottie dogs and puss in the corner quilts behind their heads.

Susan, Carmie and I worked on this 4 patch quilt together.

Carmie is being watched closely by Susan and Linda as she puts the pedal to the metal on her Juki sewing machine.

Susan, Sandi [that's me] and Carmie with quilt number three from our team that included Nancy.

The fourth quilt we made is this Sweet Dreams, no picture as we didn't get the final border on it before time was called for the day. Nancy cut it out of the same fabric from the 4 patch quilt at the top of this entry. She used an interesting second fabric for a two colour quilt.

Elke is getting a lesson from Tricia on cutting a split 9 patch block. It was a very busy and constructive day once again. Thank you everyone for participating!

Found your blog again after getting a new computer. I really enjoy your photos and was interested to see the great baby quilts. I make scrap quilts for our welfare layettes in our hospital. Yours are beautiful and I know how much they are appreciated.
