Six, Seven, Eight & Nine - ish!

I am still the mad quilter, but finally got the computer set up in my studio thanks to my daughter, Molly. So now when I am about to quit for the night, I can perhaps visit some of your blogs as well as post some of what I have been doing.
Here is the Tulips with a new border on it. It needed something to fill the background a bit.

Next is "Mother in the Meadow" done in lavender as required.

"The Sailboat" is again a mother with her baby.

To take a break from the mother's and babies, I did "Pelicans" with babies of course.

And in progress......"Egrets". Mother and baby on a stroll.

So are you grasping a theme here? Yes, the commission is for all the labor and delivery rooms in a hospital. I have 20 more of these to do! Luckily they do not ALL have to be of
mothers and babies, just some of them.

I have to say this is very hard work. I am getting such great support from my dh, Bob.
He has taken over much of what I do each day and I think when this is over he will have a new respect for what we women handle on a day to day basis. That is always a good thing.

Well....I am taking a break tonight so I think I will close for now.
PS. None of these have their bindings on yet, but the first five do!

Wow that is a lot of pieces and they are coming along really well.

I'm curious how they are going to hang them. I donated quilts to our hospital and they refused them because they considered them a fire hazard. We came up with a solution to hang them in a metal frame with plexiglass on both sides of the quilt with spacers so the quilts were not squished.

Thanks for sharing these...they are all stunning pieces! I love the "Mother In the Meadow" and the mother with the baby and sailboat.

Twenty more? Yikes! They are beautiful though and very delicate looking. Just perfectly serene for a maternity ward. Great results as always and I know you are working hard:)

The quality of these is as impressive as the quantity! Beautiful! I hope you're not totally burned out when you're finished.
