Aneela's quilt

It's done!  Thank you so much to everyone who contributed blocks.  I still can't believe my spur of the moment idea turned into a quilt!!!!!

And as you can see a couple of cushions for Aneela's daughters.  There are so many blocks left over, I really am in awe of everyone's generosity.  They will all be stitched up into quilts for our local hospitals, who do their best to give all patients in oncology and all the premies a quilt to make their stay a little happier.

I really feel with this I just had an idea, but that my fellow quilters actually did the heavy lifting, so thank you so much to:
