I remember years ago when I dreaded getting the mail. There was always bills and notifications letting me know that money and time were tight. Now days, that’s changed. I don’t dread getting the mail anymore. How could a person when I get wonderful things like this…
Five charity quilt tops came in last week…WOW!
Nancy from Homestead, Florida- Laura from Richmond, Virginia- and-Kristy from Sunnyvale, California sent them. WOW. THANKS ladies.
I’ve had a little mix up on who donated which quilts so from now on, the second I open a box the quilts all get a tag. It took screwing up a few times for me to finally come up with a system of keeping the quilts straight. My apologies again to anyone that this happened too. It’s so embarrassing.
One included a backing so I grabbed that one right away and started quilting it. I am bound and determined not to get behind on charity quilts again.
Here it is….It’s a jelly roll race quilt done with Kansas Troubles fabrics. I love these quilts. They are not huge so they don’t take long and they always turn out fun.
More things in my mail…Checks.
A huge shout out goes to Anne and her husband Jim for the monies to help with the charity quilting and to Alison who sent memorial money in honor of her mother. The money was perfect timing ladies. My charity roll of batting is coming to an end so I was just ready to order. Your money will be used towards that. I’m going to have to start watching JoAnn’s again for a batting sale.
Back when this whole charity quilting thing started I never dreamed that it would roll into all it has. The other day I got an email from a lady asking if I would take quilt tops. She went on to explain that she googled “donate charity quilt tops” and my blog is towards to top of the list. Who knew?
I’m off….there are more quilts that need to be quilted and I need to contact some of my charity quilt binders to let them know that some quilts are on the way. I think I’ll also contact Cheryl my charity long armer. There are quite a few quilt tops here again and I’m sure she’d happily help out.

Again…THANKS to everyone who helps make this all happen.
