I walked to a neighbors house yesterday, pulling my trusty cart, and brought back about 20 lbs of donated fabric to use for Project Linus quilts. I will return some of it, but wanted some polkadots and stripes to use for borders and backings. I was not disappointed; there was an abundance of polkadots, but I will need to take another walk to get some blender solids. She has plenty of those on hand, and I will know what I need when I go. Can’t wait to work on these. I’m busy finishing up the two pirate-themed quilts first.Here is what lies in wait! Looks like a busy week ahead. I’m hoping to have them all completed for “Off the Wall Friday”!
With the Christmas frenzy engulfing so many, I am quietly enjoying making some donation quilts for Project Linus which provides quilts to children in need. And now, the news filters through that there is a tragedy unfolding at a Connecticut elementary school. How can we possibly make enough quilts to comfort so many children in need? Just keep sewing. This set of 3 or 4 is designed for young boys so if you look closely – double click, you will see some pirates! Merry, merry to all, but keep those families in need in your prayers.
