Margaret’s a marvel!

The opening of the KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning & Care Centre is fast approaching, and our quiltmakers at St Mark’s are busily putting the finishing touches on these special quilts for the little ones who will be attending the kindy.
Just look at Margaret’s latest creations.
What a beauty!  There are so many things I love about this quilt – the jaunty jalopy full of animals, the cheeky little lions on the backing fabric, those great blue spotty “loaves”, and especially the rainbow bias print Margaret used for the binding.  It’s printed that way, so she didn’t need to cut it on the bias to achieve the fun and funky look.  Clever!

IMG_3793 This little fellow, along with his friends, makes a lovely backing and is sure to endear himself to the little boy or girl who chooses this quilt as their own.IMG_3794 But wait, there’s more…IMG_3795Margaret’s chosen to back this New Life quilt with “Hey Diddle Diddle” fabric.  Great choice, Margaret!

  1. That Margaret is a wonder. Her fabric choices are perfect! It must run in the family. What a blessing for those kids at KU.


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
