I have had a special project in mind for some time now. My husband is a paramedic and I always thought it would be nice if they had a small ‘hug’ quilt to give out to young patients that may be a bit frightened or maybe even some of the senior patients would take comfort in a small quilt. I finally did something about it this weekend and put together a small flannel quilt fit for a young girl. All that’s left is to sew down the binding and print a label. I really don’t know if this will work or not – typically paramedics are in a bit of a rush when they have a patient but he said that he thought it was a good idea and they’d give it a try. Here’s my first Hug – about 45″ x 56″
I did what I call a ‘daisy chain’ meander quilting
Here’s the back – the colour is a bit off so that the quilting would show
and a close up of the quilting
So – I’ll need to put together a few more before I take them to the station. I don’t really have anything ‘boyish’ so I’ll have to start checking out the sales!
Piccadilly square has been put on hold this weekend but I should be back to it this week. I am also going to be meeting up with a lady that does machine knitting. I’m really looking forward to it as I have had a knitting machine for almost 20 years and have never made anything with it. Pretty sad.
