People are good!

 February is our Neonatal Month.  we have such generous members.   this year we collected
70 Neonatal quilts, as well as 3 baby size quilts, 24 hearts, and 7 tini little knitted hats.

 Libby did a great job on the program which was all about Redwork!
there were some great examples brought it.
 this one was made in 1915 and has come through Sally's family.
this has been very well preserved.
 an even earlier one from 1912, from Ann's family had been loved
and is quite fragile

 a more recent one, I think made by Joan.
 these blocks were made by Andrea and put together by Carol
 who made it reversible.

 Andrea also made these sweet blocks

 this also is a recent one made by Libby.  Is it called Bluework or Redwork ?
Traditonally even through a different colour may have been used, it 
was still called Redwork!

 this was done by Brenda

 another by Libby, not yet quilted

 machine work
 I think done by machine as well.

 Well done Libby.  A very interesting program and very apreciated.  Handwork
is alive and well in our Guild.  Altho some of these were done by machine.
