More summer sewing

The Stitching Hearts ladies met again last week, and it was another bumper week of Show and Tell.

Jan & I went down by train again.  We always take along a project to work on.  Jan hates her photo being taken (sorry Jan).  She is working on some applique flowers here.

And I started a counted cross stitch from a kit I have had for a long time.  Not much to show at this point.
As usual, we had show and tell before lunch.  I took notes while they were being displayed as well as taking photographs, but they were coming so thick & fast, I do hope I have all the correct names against the quilts.
Made and quilted by Evelyn - it is one of those that will be raffle quilts

Next two were made by Evelyn, quilted by Robin.

Made and quilted by Robin.

Robin has recently acquired a long arm machine.  She has been practising on it for the benefit of Stitching Hearts, which is fabulous.  Thank you Robin!

Next three are cot quilt tops made by Darleen.  (First one is my favourite - what do you think?)

Made by Jan, quilted by Robin.  There are a lot of 2.5" Half Square Triangles in this one!

I think this one was made by Ellen.  It is now quilted.

Jill made & quilted this one.

Two tops made by Dasha

And last, but definitely not least, four quilt tops brought in by Coleen.  They were donated to the group by her friends. 
These two are by Margaret.

And these two were made by Maureen.

At the end of the day, Jill took 12 quilts from the cupboard to be donated to St Mary's Villa, and another 7 single quilts and 3 children's quilts for Kathleen Yorke House.


  1. Wow- your group is doing wonderful work and the lucky recipients will be very grateful, I'm sure. Greetings and Best Wishes from snowy cold eastern Canada!
