End of our Linus project

On Wednesday evening the Guide Linus project came to an end as they gave their quilts to Jacquie, the Linus representative for the area. She was very impressed with their work and the nice bright colours of the quilts.

Earlier in the day Scamp had tested the Rainbow quilt for the comfort factor  and was very impressed with it.

He had already tested it as a sleeping place prior to quilting. I think I am going to have a lot of photos to enter for the Pets on Quilts show in August. Follow the link for this on the side of my blog to see photos from previous years. 

Raindrops had been appliqu├ęd onto the design but we never made the pot of gold for the end of the rainbow. The girls were very pleased with the quilt when they saw it complete with binding.

Just some of the pile of completed quilts and baby blankets.

A picture of some of the baby blankets.

Jacquie very kindly presented the girls with their community action badge completed by taking part in this project and she completed Lucy's queen's Guide award booklet for this activity. All in all a great evening.

In addition this morning I completed the 80 feet of bunting needed to decorate the 2 boats. If I am given a photo of the decorated boats I will post it here.


  1. What a wonderful effort for Project Linus! Great job!
    Thank you so much for helping me out!

    1. Thanks Snoodles. The Guides really enjoyed learning how to make the small quilts for the premature babies. Hopefully some of them will keep on quilting as one of their hobbies.
