A Productive Quilty Weekend

Overnight, a few of my irises bloomed. In between today's raindrops, I was able to capture this image with my 'real' camera. 

As mentioned in my last post, I was able to get quite a bit done over the course of Friday and Saturday. One of the ladies in the Crosstown Quilters coordinates making and delivering breast cancer comfort pillows to our local cancer center.  Being a blessed ten year breast cancer survivor myself, I am happy to periodically donate pillows. There are five this time.

This little preemie quilt will be donated to Floating Hospital for Children. I loved this bright, colorful little panel but moved the bottom row of the design to the top of the piece. After all, the king of the jungle wearing his crown should be at the top. Borders were added to make the quilt 24x24 which is the size requested.

Another member of our guild collects small quilts and pillowcases for the children of soldiers being deployed. She and the other members of her group do wonderful work, and so, these Star War pillowcases will be headed her way. 

Finally, this pink candle mat is for me and the Red Sox mat is for my neighbor. The pattern for these  "Simple Pleasures: Candle Cradles" is available from "The Teacher's Pet." These candle mats coupled with a battery operated candles make cute, quick gifts.
