Quilts of Valour and Pillowcases

I took the weekend and caught up on a couple of committments.

Dineke gave me this quilt for the Quilts of Valour program, so it's ready now for her to bind. Quilted with Baptist Fan using the Circle Lord. I love the way she pieced the backing! I used a poofy polyester batting which is not my favorite. QOV has made a good deal with a company who will provide wholesale pricing to the program, so I thought I would try the stuff. I prefer my usual Hobbs batting which is much softer.

This is my Stack 'n Whack from many years ago, finished and going to the Quilts of Valour, along with Dineke's. For this I used large leftover hunks of Hobbs 80/20 batting. Three pieces in all - you can't even tell.

Here is the matching pillowcase.

Since I was making one pillowcase I thought I'd contribute my share to the local quilt shop. Sue's Quilt 'n More has committed 100 pillowcases to the All People Quilt campaign. These will be donated to Hamilton's cancer hospital for patients who have to stay. My pillowcase is flannel. Niiice.

  1. I love the quilt with the Baptist Fans - don't they look great on the right quilt.
