These are burp clothes that I am working on for my new grand baby!! Yes, we just found out that my daughter-in-law is expecting their/our first! We are thrilled and wait with anticipation. Lots to do between now and November!
I am also involved in a first for me, a collaborative quilt! Each of us is making 12 nine patch squares, to measure 6 in. finished, and 12 hour glass squares, also to measure 6 in. finished. This is so much fun! I look forward to sharing more as time goes on.
"Java Stars" was pieced by my friend Barb! She did such a great job. She asked me to quilt it for her. So, this is the last of my 'practice' quilts for learning how to machine quilts. It was a challenge, but so much fun! I am pleased with it, I hope that she will be too!
I have so many projects waiting in the wings. I will tell you a little about me. I sew with donated fabrics, UFO's and kits! My quilt tops and projects are auctioned off once a year at a charity auction. All of the money raised goes towards disaster relief through the "West Coast Mennonite Sale & Auction for World Relief" organization. They are near and dear to my heart. I have been to 42 of these auctions over the years! For more information, go to www.westcoastmccsale.org or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Using donated fabric presents a challenge all its own. I get to hunt for the perfect pattern and fabric combo to appeal to the masses! I encourage each of you to search your stash and your hearts to see what/where you can donate!!
I LOVE WHAT I DO!!!
