We had another “group” of babies born at church this year. this is another quilt that the Sew Group got to work on. I received a bundle of 5 inch squares in the mail and thought they would work well with white. Part of the purpose of the Sew Group is fellowship but the other part is teaching some ladies how to quilt. A few of them have sewing/quilting experience but most of them do not. One of the ladies brings her elementary aged daughter with her who loves to do anything with fabric, even use the sewing machine. For this project she traced all the leaf shapes onto the fusible web and then was able to arrange the border. One of the ladies started the machine appliqué during Sew Group and then ended up taking it home and finishing it for me. =) She had a few projects in mind that would need machine appliqué so she was thrilled to learn this technique. Since this was a first baby for this couple, I decided to make a matching white fleece blanket with a matching binding. This was a fun gift to give to this young couple.
