Somebunny’s been busy


With the August get-together for St Mark’s Quilters upon us the time seems right to share with you another finished Blanket of Love.


This little quilt is destined to wrap a tiny bub who doesn’t survive her birth, and will very possibly be treasured for many years as a tangible memory of that lost bub.

Sarah carefully chose her fabrics from our donated pieces to create a quilt that’s as delicate as fairy floss and oh-so baby girly.


She pieced the back from white homespun and the palest pink hand-dye.


With a glittery surface treatment the white squares on the front sparkle in the sun - and Sarah’s totally nailed the technique for mitred corners Be right back


We now have 20 Blankets of Love for the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Newborn Care Nursery, with several more finishes expected very soon, maybe today…

  1. Other sparkles you might see are the tears in my eyes. Such a beautiful quilt - well made - for a family that will cherish it. Your efforts at St. Mark's Quilters simply touch me.


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