Children in Need quilt update....

Yesterday afternoon our good friend Jacquie came with her arms full of the quilts she is making using the quilt blocks donated for the Children in Need appeal to update us on their progress and Jo and I were totally blown away by each and every one of them so I felt I should update all our wonderful blogging friends as a thank you for their efforts in helping to make them possible.  Jacquie has been really touched by how many you girls made and it allowed her to make 6 amazing quilts for Children in need.  4 now completed and last two just to be wadded and quilted together.



Quilt number 1 completed....lilac sashing to link the quilt blocks



Quilt number 2 completed....pink sashing to link the quilt blocks



Quilt number 3 completed....red sashing to link the quilt blocks



Quilt number 4 [an earlier pic as it was out on loan yesterday] now completed....orange sashing to link the quilt blocks



Quilt number 5 to be completed....navy sashing to link the quilt blocks



Quilt number 6 to be completed....green sashing to link the quilt blocks 













All different but all simply gorgeous and each quilt will have it's own Pudsey bear label with the names of the makers on it...


The draw for the quilts is on Thursday 5th December so good luck girls.

There are also 3 wall hangings and two gorgeous cushions that have also been made with quilt blocks that will be sold to raise yet more money for Children in Need but I'm sorry to say I don't have photos of those as yet.

Yes don't they all look so lovely. Jacquie has worked so hard putting our gorgeous 12" squares together - she is a treasure. The Pudsey labels are fab - well done you. x Jo

Haven't you been busy? Makes me feel quite ashamed that I seemed to have achieved so little this week.
