 I hope you don’t feel overwhelmed with my emails of charity quilts, but when others donate completed tops and/or fabrics along with the pattern they meant to make, it is a fairly fast finish for me.  The places I (WE) donate to are so appreciative this time of year, as we are having super cold weather right now.  We are about 20 degrees below the normal temperature for November.  Brrrr!”

I don’t feel a bit overwhelmed…Honestly, I’m thrilled.  I’m so happy good happens in the world and I love to be able to see it in my everyday life!!!  Don’t you agree?

 “The first quilt was one I made using fabric sent to me from Judy M. in Lynchburg, VA.  She also sent the pattern, the ruler to make the tumblers, some “minky” type fabric for the appliques, and she even traced and cut out the elephant shape onto clear plastic to do the applique with.”


Oh my goodness…aren’t the elephants adorable.  SO CUTE!!
“The backing came from Karen S. in Chino, CA.  Coincidentally, the backing arrived at my house the same day I finished putting the top together.  The peachy/orange color was a good match!  This will go to the Ronald McDonald House.”

I love this and think it’s the PERFECT little kid quilt!

“The second and third quilts were both made from 3″ squares of Christmassy/wintery prints sent to me from Nancy K. in New Port Richey, FL.”

The sashing, backs, and binding all came from my stash.  I am hoping these two quilts will brighten some children’s lives who are staying at the Father’s with Children Shelter.


Here’s the second quilt….

Oh my goodness ladies, what a trio of wonderful quilts.  These are all sure to be loved.  It always amazes me how someone else’s UFOs can turn into such lovely quilts.  Thanks to all who are so generous with their time and their resources.  You all are the best!!
