Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I was fortunate enough this morning to wake up in a wonderful bed, to beautiful sunlight peaking over the trees. I just knew it was time to move. Don't get me wrong I love looking at all the posts on "My quilt Place" peoples ideas, quilting problems, their finished projects, and I will admit I am envious of the ladies and gentlemen that seem to be so prolific in their projects they complete. I have 8 UFOs at least in my sewing room as we speak. One is my initial attempt at quilting 30+ years ago when I lived near Sisters, Oregon and the fabrics are all from the infamous Stitchin Post! Anyway I digress while reading a blog the other day I saw a call out for help and decided hey I have stuff sitting here I can do something.(See the post below) Anyway I pulled out a Jelly Roll I had sitting around I bought to make something a while back and found a relatively simple pattern and got to work. Amazing how much you can get done in just a few hours. We normally futz, piddle, and tweak around while making our quilts we put them aside, put them away and even abandon them.
Anyway my task for the day complete my donation quilt, and I have a UFO that is so old that I am going to try to finish it up and donate it as well. So what are you doing today! Happy sewing, quilting, and Happy Veteran's Day remember to be thankful for what we have.
I recieved an email message from Carrie who wanted me to pass on the following information:
I am the Long Island Chapter Coordinator for Quilts for Kids .org and am hoping that you can send a shout out for child size quilts.
We are working with the local schools in Long Beach, pediatricians in the Rockaways and the Community Outreach Center of Nassau Community Hospital and Winthrop Hospital to help get warm quilts to people.
We are also going straight to where the Red Cross Disaster Relief Vehicles are and directly giving to people in need.
Quilts can be sent to:
