Throughout my quarantine time I was at the machine most every moment I was able. There were so many quilts here…Quilt tops were coming out my ears!! There were 27 charity quilts here…and 25 of mine and Kelli’s (ALL VERY LARGE) quilts and 4 of my cousin Donna’s quilts.
After that experience I can tell you a few things for sure…
1- I will never let the stack of quilt tops around here EVER get as high again.
2- I am not going postpone doing quilt because I ‘m afraid to pick thread color or quilting motif.
3-I made a new page about charity quilts and hopefully that will help with the influx. I love doing charity quilts but only a few at a time. I did make a Frequently Ask Question page to help with that.
4-I found a couple of other people willing to bind and machine quilt some of the charity quilts so I am going to share the load. Thanks to all who offered to help.
As my quarantine was ending I counted up my quilts that were left here….
I have 3 charity quilts.
I have 7 of mine and Kelli’s.
I had 4 of Donna’s.
Comparing the numbers..no wonder I was pooped out. A LOT of quilts got out of here!!!
Just about then my cousin Donna messaged me and asked if I could finish up her quilts and mail them to her. Donna lives in Alaska and typically doesn’t like to spring for postage (I don’t blame her) so she picks them up when she’s here in the lower 48 states. She mentioned that she wanted to get a couple finished and donated to people who had a fire her way. Although I was VERY tired of my life attached to the quilting machine, I decided what’s another two more days at the machine??
She had some very nice quilts.
My favorite was this one.
