Green Quilt

I finished this little quilt last night. It is probably a good size for a cot or a pram. It will be sent off soon and will make its way to a survivor of the bushfires. If you are looking fot ways to help there are fantastic ideas at Handmade Help. I love the idea of making a cook book out of everyones family recipes. Copies will be distributed to people who lost everything in the fires and everyone else can buy a copy with proceeds going to the Red Cross. So if you have any old family recipes go here to find out where to send them.

The quilt turned out beautiful. I love the squiggly quilting - how did you do that? My sewing machine would not do that. Hopefully it will give a little one some much needed comfort.
