A Finish for Love Quilts


I made a committment to stitch one square for Love Quilts each year. Love Quilts is a great organization that makes quilts for sick children. This is the 2011 contribution. The design come from Stoney Creek's Sea Babies booklet.
It is stitched on 14 count aida (did I mention I hate stitching on aida?) with DMC floss. If it wasn't required to stitch on aida, I would probably stitch more each year, but after finishing one on aida, I am done for the year!

I understand completely. I feel guilty everytime I read about Cole's quilts or Love Quilts ... but I know that I am so done with "cute" topics and aida ... so I have limited my charity stitching to ornaments I can stitch on linen in designs and colors that don't make my eyes bleed ... I have donated ornaments to Stitching For The Cure over the past few years and will continue to do so, if she starts up the process again.

Cute design, though! I completely agree, and was going to make a plug for Cole's Quilts, too, but Riona already mentioned them. Stitches of love and kindness will accept aida or evenweave, so there's a bit more leeway there, though I don't have any experience with them yet. It's good that we can share in this way, even if we really, really do dislike aida, lol.

I don't like Aida either. It is a really cute fish though.

This is a really nice thing to do but it is a lot to ask someone to stitch on Aida. The fish did turn out cute. I don't like making Kissing Pillows because they are on Aida.
