Here is the very last of the quilts for West, Texas….
Isn’t this quilt WONDERFUL. This one was made by Kay (I think). I think it must have been a block exchange quilt because the blocks all had initials on them. This one needed a king size batting and I didn’t have one. Then (believe it or not) I found one for $2 at the thrift store. The batting was a poly batting but I went with it.
I know for some it’s taboo to use poly batting but it actually worked nicely.
This is floral stipple pattern from the Pajama Quilter. I love it and will use it often. I couldn’t match the fabric color of the green or pink so I ended up binding it in white. It wasn’t my first choice but I did what I had to do.
Way back on April 18th I sent out a challenge hoping to get 10 quilt tops to quilt…I counted and ended up with 18. Can you believe you all were so helpful?? I also got in some money to help with batting costs, backing costs and postage. AMAZING!!!! The first box I sent cost $28 so the donations were greatly appreciated (there are three more going out as I write this).
I had a blast!! If anyone has some Quilt of Valor tops that they would like quilted, drop me a note. I will do one a month for free and send them on for you. Here’s my email address. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d like to do something to help….
