NICU Quilts

Over the last two weeks I have been busy making Little Quilts for 
Auckland Hospital's Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit.

Through the shop we aim to make about 800 - 900 quilts per year.


These 16 quilts were all made from some sample rectangles given to me 
by one of my wholesalers, but the fabric are so pretty that no 
clever design is needed - the fabric does all the work.


Some are soft and pretty and are quilted with a wavy stitch across the diagonals.


Others are a little bolder in colour and are quilted with double
straight lines on each seam line.

Our minimum measurement for these ones that go home with babies is
20" by 24" - these are a little larger but that is fine.

We also do some 1 metre by 80cms which act as incubators covers 
in the wards and don't go home.

I have also been back out at school for day two of our quilt programme.

      

The aim this week was for all our rows to be sewn together and they did very well.




They sewed while I ironed!


Back to hand quilting my new taupe Block of the Month "Kyoto Flower Pots" now.
Back soon.
