Another Nurses for Newborns Quilt

I have my sewing machine back from the repair shop and it's running nicely. Whoo-hoo!!!

While it was out, I pulled fabrics for one more Nurses for Newborns quilt.

The large print with numbers is actually off-cuts from a backing for a quilt I made several years ago. The pieces I have are not wide enough for a N4Nb backing, but I could splice in a strip of something and make it work. Another small piece of the numbers print would yield six 6-1/2" squares.

I found some coordinating colors in my stash and cut some squares. Now that my machine is home, it took only a short time to piece a top together.

I'll get this quilted and bound this week. On Saturday I'll have an opportunity to turn in all the N4Nb quilts I've made so far.

At 24" x 36", these small quilts are quick, and very satisfying when I get the urge to pull fabrics and play with them. STLMQG will collect N4Nb quilts again in November, so I'll make a few more before then.
