Lori send it a super nice quilt top that turned out great. Lori works with Sharehouse an amazing organization that helps people work through addiction. They request that all tops be at least twin-sized.
“This is the latest quilt that I put together with the help of you and one of your generous quilting friends. This was a nice big quilt, 84” x 84”.
I looked in my stash and found… the blue backing fabric that looked liked the blue in the quilt. I used that blue for the backing and binding. With the quilt being 84” long, I needed to…
add a strip in the backing to give it a little more length.
I do my binding by machine, but stitch it on the back first, then turn it to the front and stitch it. I try to match my top thread to the binding of the quilt and match the bobbin thread to the backing of the quilt.”
I think the quilt turned out great!! Lori always does some great work.
Lori and I both recieved an wonderful letter and thank you from Sharehouse. I would love to share it with you but for privacy reasons, I am not.
One of the people who went through the program wrote us a note thanking us for the quilt. It was a real tear jerker of a story….so much so that I let our son Karl read it and he too got teary eyed.
Supported people through addiction is hard but so rewarding. I’m so thankful that Lori picked up this cause and allows all of us to help too.
Donations of twin sized quilt tops or larger are exactly what Lori needs.
I think these quilts are the gift that keeps giving. They are a wonderful reminder to people who have moved out of the program and into a new chapter that people are around to support them when time gets tough.
Many thanks to Lori for introducing us all to Sharehouse. Thanks for her hard work and to the generosity of the person who made this quilt top.
