I have quilts to share with you from Elizabeth today.
“My latest endeavors: the first one I sent to a group in Uvalde, Texas, that is collecting quilts for the students at the elementary school. It looks a little wrinkled but came out nice. The Cresco ladies came through again.
The other three went to Comfort Cases, which packs backpacks for foster children. These also were the handiwork of the talented Cresco ladies.
The green and the yellow quilt has happy clowns on it. I quilted wavy lines with a setting on my sewing machine.
The nautical quilt has shells, anchors, and boats in the squares and curlicues all around.
I made a template out of …cardboard for it and used a cookie cutter for the boat and a plastic shell shape that originally covered little soaps in a package.
The last quilt I finished with wavy lines using a stencil. The backing is a sheet; the backings on the other quilts came from my stash.
These were fun to do and will, I hope, brighten the lives of their recipients.”
Three cheers for Elizabeth and the Cresco Ladies. Elizabeth did some great work on these…and what perfect causes they will be helping. As always many thanks to the Cresco Ladies. They are knocking out quilt tops right and left. May these bring comfort to the recipients.
