On the Quilt Frame: A Charity Quilt

I popped a charity quilt on the frame….

It’s been a blast working on it.  It’s made of large rectangles and squares so in each block I’ve been doing something a little bit different.

You can’t see the best in the first picture.  I zoomed in a little…see??

Here’s another block….

I am hoping to finish this one up today.

Stayed tuned and hopefully I’ll get the binding on and can show you the finished product later this week.

To the Mail

Last Wednesday we made a trip to the post office.

One quilt went to Quiltmaker and will be featured in the September/October issue.  Two charity quilt went to Quilts for the South Quilt Drive…and two quilt including this one that I just finished up to send to Tisha.

CharityQuilt

You might remember Tisha.  She sent me a big stack of crocheted dish cloths awhile back.  Well she makes quilt for US service men and women who are serving overseas.  She has a friend who is serving now and planned to send a bunch of quilts to that friends’ unit.

This one along with another I recently quilted are heading off overseas to warm the heart of the serviceman.

I feel so good to have all of these off and on their way meeting deadlines or doing good for others.

I am running a little low on quilt tops.  I have two bigger ones and two smaller ones left.  If anyone has some they’d like quilted and donated to charity, feel free to send them my way…I will quilt them and pass them on to worthy causes.

I just got a box with two charity quilts tops in from Brenna.  THANKS!!

I love the colors on this one….

…and I love the design on this one!

Someone asked if I am still doing charity quilts and the answer is yes..I am.  We’ve been fighting a lot of deadlines lately so I haven’t gotten as many done as I would like but once May comes along, I hope to get working on a few more.

I hate when I get so busy that it’s hard to squeeze to charity quilting in but this too shall pass and I’ll be back in the charity quilt swing again.   In the mean time, feel free to send charity quilt tops my way.  I’ll get to them eventually.

A Friday Finish: Charity Quilt

We’ve been busy like crazy but I did manage to sneak in a charity quilt.

This one is from Pam and I am saving it for Trisha…that is if she still needs military quilts.  Pam does such a marvelous job putting fabrics together.  All the pieces are a mis-match but come together so nicely.

Tisha, another blog reader, who was so kind to send me dishcloths, asked if there were any quilts around that she could donate to military.  Well I think this one would be perfect.  Pam sent another one similar in style and I think that one would be good for the same cause.  They aren’t red, white and blue, but still good colors I think that a guy can like it too.

Star-2

No fancy quilting…just a swirl done in my trusty #425 Superior thread.  This one was a quick quilt to do.  Everything clicked and was able to fly through it.

Thanks so much Pam and Tisha for making me part of the link that sends charity quilts to deserving people.

Today, we are hooking up with……Confessions of a Fabric AddictLink a Finish FridayFreedom Fridays, and Crazy Mom Quilts.
