The deadline was for April 30th, so I had to work hard to get them all done- but I did it....
I went thru all the quilt tops I had, some were mine, some were donated to me by friends who know I make comfort quilts and a few were just donated to me by a friend who was downsizing and had to get rid of stuff- some being quilt tops and backings. I just loaded them on the frame and I just did a quick meander stitch- so I could get them done soon.
So today I mailed off 15 quilts, I only got pics of 13 coz I was in such a hurry....
It was over 25 pounds worth- but I had donations to offset the shipping- AND it is for a good cause.
Here are pic of the quilts I sent. some are baby quilts, some medium size and 2 were large.
This was made by someone and given to Lena and she donated to me.
This is a baby size from Jo- she was downsizing and donated a few- Thanks!
Another from Jo- size of 50 x 60
This is a large flannel one from Jo- 60x70
This is one that Giz donated- her daughter Dakota made it.
A strip twist made by Giz
Dawn-Marie donated both of these for me to use for comfort quilts- DONE!
Neen had sent me blocks from a Mystery quilt she was making and never finished. So I assembled them into these 2 baby quilts to send.
The tops I made are as follows
Just some scrappy 6" sqs.
leftovers from Megs quilt.
And my very 1st quilt I made... hard to look at me mistakes but it was still a good top to quilt and send. I have GREATLY improved over the last 7 years
Wendy sent me 2 quilt tops for this project- and I got them done- they were the last ones and was in such a hurry I thought I had pics of them- but sadly I didn't. I am sorry Wendy, they really turned out nice and I appreciated all you did to help me with this cause- you are a gem!
I do have one pic of part of the baby quilt- I really liked the fabric and inquired of her where she got it, so here is a partial pic.
I hope this effort raises ALOT of quilts for these poor folks in Japan. It is so sad what they must be going thru and if I can help by sending a quilt- it was my honor to do so!
I wish I had more time- I could have finished a few more baby quilts. Oh well.
I have some other projects I need to work on.
