Heathers quilt for a Newborn... read all about it from Hunters Hill Quilters...
QUILTS FOR THE INTENSIVE WARD FOR THE NEWBORN BABIES AT WESTMEAD CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
The staff have requested that the cot quilts be 26" x 26" (66cm x 66cm) and made from all cotton including 100% cotton batting, this is because of static.
As the quilts will receive vigorous washing they should be sewn to cope with such treatment/
The ward will take as many as we can made as some of the quilts are taken home by the parents.
This is Heather's Colonial Quilt, she has to make it as women back then did, she has one needle limited fabric, two spools of thread, she cannot use a sewing machine, an iron or templates or pins but she can make up any pattern. Looking great isn't it.
This is Daphne's quilt made for a Cystic Fibrosis child with the Kamilaroi Quilters in Windsor.
