I’ve been working at the quilting machine still….There are still more charity quilts that need attention. I didn’t get as many done as I had hoped but this week is looking good like I might have some time to get back in the swing of working on them.
Here’s what I’ve gotten done….This pretty one in Kansas Trouble fabrics.
The gal that made this one has donated several in this pattern…they make an awesome donation quilt.
Here’s another. This one came in the box of goodies and unfinished projects. It’s in a medallion style.
This one I had set aside. I was having lots of trouble finding a backing. That mauve color is not popular anymore and it’s very hard to find. It’s a cute little quilt, but a bit of a challenge. I finally came up with at flat sheet that matched. I’m so glad that now it’s finished up. I had an even worse time finding a binding. I ended up digging through the garbage and found enough extra of the backing fabric so it’s getting bound with the backing fabric.
This is the last one for this post…if you’re a Bonnie Hunter fan you might recognize this as Bricks and Stepping Stones.This one is a scrap lovers dream. There are all sorts of fabrics in this one!
Can you believe that I think there are still seven or eight charity quilts left for me to finish?? There is a HUGE flannel quilt that was donated but it’s too big to fit on my frame. I contacted Cheryl in Texas and asked what size of table she had. She has a 12′ tables so she’ll be able to get it on her frame. I’ll send that out when I send this bunch out to the binders. I am hoping to be done with the charity quilts by Thanksgiving. It sure would be nice to sew the new mystery quilt guilt free.
I know I shouldn’t but I always feel a little guilty sewing on my own things when there are lots of charity quilts here….and with that, I’m off to finish the quilt that’s on the frame.
Today I’m hooking up with Patchwork Times.
