The guild I belong to has a lot of opportunity to sew for charitable causes. We sew pillowcases for Autistic children, baby quilts, adult quilts, dresses for children, and reuasble pads for teens. A few weeks ago I went to our sewing bee to start a new charity quilt. A 4* Hour Carpenter Star.
At home I was able to finish piecing the charity quilt, in a few more 4 hour sessions. LOL I am making this for our Christmas Day give back. The pattern and fabric was put together by one of our members who knows people. LOL! She got a generous donation of coordinating fabrics from a local textile designer. What a wonderful gift we were given. And we can pass on that bounty by making quilts for those stuck in the hospital on Christmas Day.
I have used all of the sunflower print except for some border remnants, the cream barkish print is the only one I have enough to get binding from, and the green is somewhere in between the others. I think someone said there is more of the fabric in our storage room, so I might look to see if I can grab more of the print to make the binding.
The next step is deciding if I will quilt it or
beg, plead, cajole, bribe, politely ask my friend if she wants to use it for long arm practice. All that negative space calls for fun quilting, but not on my domestic.
*4 Hours my little toe!
