Parish Notices

No sewing to report tonight..... but a couple of notices!
First up there is still 21 hours to cast your vote in the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge over at Ellison Lane Quilts!
Modern Mini Challenge
All of the 245 entries are wonderful, so if you have time, take a look round. All of the finalists are stunning. I've voted for my favourites already!

The second parish notice is another mini quilt plea. At our local quilt shop, two regulars recently lost their grandchildren. They were alive until days before their due dates, but were born asleep. A local charity here in Newcastle, Tiny Lives, and our local quilt shop have joined forces to make small incubator quilts, that the charity will distribute to the parents of babies born asleep, or premature babies at the RVI hospital in Newcastle. The quilts have to be just 20"x16" and have no embelishments, loose threads or invisible thread. Anyone who can send their quilt to our local quilt shop by 31st March will be entered into a prize draw for some Moda goodies. Check out the details on the shop's blog. I've pieced a top and just been over to pick up some flannel for the backing - I think I'll skip the wadding. Hopefully I'll post a photo tomorrow. It's nearly the weekend!!!
