Fast quilt project

A call was put out that a craft friend was very sick. She has cancer and was having a rough time. A lady I didn't know at the time was taking on the large undertaking of gathering a few special blocks and forming some sort of comfort quilt for them. Time was of the essence. She wanted her to know how much we love her as soon as possible. We had less than a week to get blocks to her.

I pulled out a couple of strip blocks and personalized them. My only contribution to this quilt was 2 blocks. The rest were other crafters and quilters. And Peggy ,who pulled it all together.

The latest news is that our friend is on chemo with a good prognosis and should recieve her quilt soon. I was honored to contribute to this effort.

My Downy quilts for kids

I finally got the pictures uploaded of my quilts I made. The first one is the kit they sent me. It is so bright! The fabric is called nuts and bolts. The second one I fussy cut from some kitten material that I have had for several years. All the fabric in the second picture is at least 5 years old and probably closer to 10 years. Now I just have to mail them back to them tomorrow!
