From Canada to India

Not me, but one of my quilts. Over the weekend, I put together a small baby quilt to contribute to Craft Hope's Project #3. Craft Hope is a love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those less fortunate around the world.

I came across Craft Hope in my daily blog reading and wanted to contribute. My quilt will be going to help the babies at an Indian orphanage.

I wanted the fishy fat quarter to stay intact so you could see the large fish pattern, so I simply surrounded it with colourful squares.

Instead of using batting and creating a quilt that might be too warm for the climate, I simply sewed a snuggly flannel backing to the cotton top of the blanket and I'm happy with the light, yet cosy, result.

I'm sure the good folks at Craft Hope have more ideas and I'll be keeping my sewing machine at the ready for future projects.


  1. So great, Hol! And great pics of you and your work.

  2. You'd BETTER keep your sewing machine ready, Hol---every Mom in India is going to want one of your colourful quilts! It's beautiful!

  3. I should have said . . . every CHILD in India is going to want one of your quilts! (It's early and I missed the "orphaned" part.)

  4. Good job Hol! It's so cute! I am thinking of making toques for babies...just started one. You in? :)
