Mum's the Word!

Or at least it will be at the Mother's Luncheon with Maggie Beer which is in aid of the Children's Medical research Institute.  This quilt will be raffled there.  Andrea picked it up from the quilter today and doesn't it look lovely!  I still really love these colours and you just can't go wrong with pinwheels. All that remains now is for another Gumnut, Jennie, to sew the binding on.
 Andrea also worked overtime and put together all the pinwheels that we made at our last quilt group meeting.  She brought it over today and joined by Irene we layered and pinned all three quilts for the Family of Five.  
 Irene took the little girl's one home to quilt and I got stuck into the other two.  Phew!  Thankfully I managed to get them finished before the boys came home from school.  I really do like these colours!
Tomorrow I will trim the two that I have and make the bindings.  Fortunately I don't have to do the hand sewing.

Till next time........happy stitching!
