I recently decided it was time to lend my skills to making some charity quilts for our guild’s favored organization. We use a local community health building’s conference room to sew, so we make quilts to be handed out to patients on Christmas Day at that location. I had some blocks in my stash from the 1990’s, intended at one time for twin quilts for my daughters. Needless to say, they didn’t happen. So I dug them out, divided them into 2 tops and got them to flimsy stages.
A guild friend recently got a mid-arm so she was gracious to take the larger quilt for practice. I am so thankful, knowing that I probably wouldn’t be very speedy in getting the quilting done myself. I picked it up Friday and got the binding sewn on Sat, with the final tacking taking place on Sunday. As you can see the scrappy binding almost didn’t make it!
And freshly washed and dried!
Nice and crinkly!
