From Kayla… Before today’s post, I thought I’d drop in with an update from Mom. She’s doing well physically but is incredibly bored. You know how busy she usually keeps! Her food selections are very limited but we found out she can eat from Chipotle, which delivers. We have been calling her but she has to talk through a phone covered with a plastic bag. Rosie is handling her absence very poorly, but the Up North kids are taking good care of her. Mom’s radiation reading has to be at a 7 before she can leave, but it is hard to predict when the level will get there because the change doesn’t follow a predictable pattern. We are hopeful she gets to leave on Sunday and can isolate in her home. I don’t mean to be a downer with the update- we are so grateful she is able to be treated and are happy for these little complaints.
Now for the scheduled post…
Sandra lives to the south of me near Oelwein, Iowa and she is one of our community quilters. Sandra belongs to an active church group that does many outreach projects in their community. One of their outreach focus’ is community quilting.
I have sent you a number of pictures of our quilts. There were several I did not photo. We gave 31 quilts to Winterize our community this year which includes some of yours. We thank you for your help. Will try to send more pictures next year. The last photo was a quilt given to us to finish by a daughter. Her mom did not get finished and so we did finish for her. Was given to a father and 2 children in need. Thanks and prayers to you for the coming year.
Here are the quilts from Sandra. The first is perfect for a guy who loves hunting or the outdoors.
This next one is a great idea for a charity quilt. It would sew together quickly.
I love….anything nine-patch.
Oh, and what cute prints. I’m so glad Sandra included a close-up picture.
I love gray and teal together. I think teal is one of my new favorite colors in quilts. I feel like they can be girly or boyish.
Wow..how colorful. I like this version of a friendship star. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen that before.
This is the backing of that quilt. I love the backing. Another great idea. It’s reversible!!
Here is the quilt that Sandra said was donated by a daughter…so fun.
Sandra and her group are on the community quilting page. You can find that HERE.
Many-many thanks to Sandra and the crew and to those who have sent goodies their way. GREAT WORK!!
