I am just popping in quick with a stash report and looking for a bit of advice…
After I wrote on the blog a couple weeks ago that Kelli and I were interested in making some charity quilts, I have gotten an overwhelming response from people who are interested in coming to sew with us, people wanting to send fabric or quilt tops. It’s been really great and fun getting packages in the mail.
Check out this GREAT quilt that came from Cindi. The top came quilted with the binding fabric included!! All I did was bind the quilt. What a generous donation!!
..and am amazing gift for someone in need. The quilt is going to be packaged up with the quilt that Kelli and I had finished and sent off to the fire victims. I am sending the quilts to Julie at Having Fun Quilting.
Cindi also sent TWO more quilt tops. I will show them as I get them quilted. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate the help and beautiful quilts.
This box of goodies came from Ila who I swear is like my adopted aunt….she is always blessing me and my girls with goodies.
I love the Shrek fabric…there’s other goodies in there too! I am thinking I need to work on some quick but cute designs for donation quilts….quilts with bigger pieces yet not too big so the quilts can come together quickly.
I do have a problem though. How do I count donated fabric that will be going out in donated quilts? I don’t put the fabric in with my regular fabric so I just don’t know.
For now, am keeping it in one box. I think I just won’t count donation fabric either way…not in …not out. Does that sound like a fair plan??
I have been really busy last week, mostly on vacation. I have gotten behind on blog things. SORRY!! I’ll try to get caught up this week….
That’s makes my stash report look like this….
