Blessings from Bonnie P.

Our guild is blessed to have Bonnie P. as a member. She is an avid quilter whose work you have likely seen here before. She recently donated six quilts and a fleece blanket for our guild to give to the hospital.

Bonnie is the one who makes her own fabric labels and sews them into the quilts and blankets. She makes one label for our guild, and one of a frog, and each one of her creations sports this personal touch.
Speaking of sports, check out the football blanket on the left!

I wish this photo was clearer. It has a strip quilt, a fleece blanket with braided trim and a sweet beach print. See details below.
Yummy colors and fabric combinations

Bonnie has offered to help me go through the bountiful fabric which has been donated to our guild, so that it can be organized and more easily accessed. It can be overwhelming to a beginning quilter, and Bonnie's expertise will be very welcome indeed.

Thank you, Bonnie!
and special thanks to Cami H. for cutting fringe into nine donated holiday-themed fleece blankets! Every bit of time, talent and treasure helps us to bring comfort to children who are in the hospital. It's especially needed for those who are sick during the holidays.
