I was over at Michelle’s Romantic Tangle yesterday and saw her post about 100 Quilts for Kids.
I thought…hey I can do that. Then I started to think of a worthy place to send a quilt. That is when I remembered that Judy from Patchwork Times is collecting quilts for Texas Fire Victims. So I went through a pile of quilts I had upstairs and decided to part with this quilt top….
It’s just a top but Judy offered to machine quilt and bind it. It’s a Miss Rosie’s Schnibble pattern, Paganini. I made it sometime back but just never finished it. You can read about it here.
I am also sending Judy this quilt. It’s another Miss Rosie Schnibble, Roundabout…I loved this pattern. I love the quilt too. The machine quilting was “risky” for me. I used a dark variegated thread and LOVED it. It’s something I will do again on the right quilt. This quilt is a hard one for me to part with…You can read about the quilt and see close ups of the machine quilting here and here. I loved this fabric line. Did I say this one was hard to part with? It sure feels good to know that it’s going to someone who will use it.
The quilt is going for a good cause and that’s more important than having it sit upstairs in a pile of quilts I pull out and look at occasionally. I’m glad that I blog because I can always go back, see the entries about it and reminisce about quilts that I have given away. Before I blogged, I was horrible at recording any information about quilts that I have made.
Seeing these Schnibble quilts has really got me thinking that I’d like to make a couple again…Schnibble patterns are so fun. I just love them. It gives me a chance to use a fabric line I might not have otherwise purchased. I love Civil War prints…but it’s nice to step out of that box once in a while.
Do you have something that you can donate?
Most of the quilts I make I give away. One year I made over 50 baby quilts for ABC Quilts. Now I make them for Quilts For Kids. After losing our 9 year old son I want to try and bring as much comfort to children (and parents) as I can.
