Aunty Jane runs a charity that makes quilts for sick and terminally ill children. Stitchers from around the world volunteer to stitch a square (or several squares) on a theme that the sick child asks for. Once Aunty Jane has all the squares she then makes them into the most wonderful quilts for these children. The quilts go everywhere with the children and are a great source of comfort while they endure some painful procedures in hospital. So, of course when Aunty Jane asked me if I could design some motifs for these quilts, I was delighted to be able to help. Aunty Jane suggested that we do some Lego designs as they would probably be very popular with some of the little boys….and we all know how difficult it is to find suitable male designs! After contacting the Lego company to make sure we weren’t breaking any copyright rules, I got to work. I decided to do an alphabet with each letter having a different Lego figure.
Sadly I don't have any pictures as I didn't stitch any of the designs, but If you click here you’ll see the charts and some of the finished stitching.
Please check out the rest of Aunty Jane’s albums to see more wonderful stitching done by some true stars. The quilts are truly amazing.

I guess there must be hundreds of Aunty Jane’s around the world working away quietly, giving of their time and skill and making a real difference to the world albeit in a small way. Wouldn’t a program about these type of people (true stars) make a much better reality show – I know I’d watch!
Until next time…happy stitching!
