One of the newer apartment buildings in the area burnt several weeks ago and as is in these things, one apartment caught and the others went quickly with it.
One of the residents was a young family expecting their first baby and they lost everything. I volunteered to make the baby a quilt since he will not be here for another few weeks.
I put his name on the diagonal and appliqued a giraffe and koala all using the matching fabric on the other side. All that is left is putting on the quilt label and getting the quilt 45 miles to its new home!
