Charity Quilts

I have been going through my UFO's and picking out blocks and fabrics that I really don't care for and making those into tops for Charity quilts. I finished another top last night. 5th finish in about 2 months. Granted, all I've done is sew blocks together and add borders but that's more progress than I've made in a long, long time. I have other projects calling my name, so the charity ones may slow down a little but I'm going to keep them out and work on them when I feel the urge. Typically that happens when I hear something on TV or elsewhere that tugs at my heart strings. Then I feel like I need to be doing my part to help. I have my share of problems and things going on in my life but I know that there are people far worse off than I am.

I stayed up till midnight last night and finished this baby quilt. I know that some little girl is just going to love it.

I wish I'd done a little better on centering the squares of the fabric but it still turned out OK.

Today I'm gonna take a quilt with me to work and try to do some binding. Then tonight I'm gonna see how many of the "Random Squares" blocks I can make. Here is my good friend tirane's. She LOVES Black. I'm doing mine in pinks and reds simply because that is what I currently have a LOT of in my stash. Beth is doing hers in a set of teal and brown fabrics. It will be interesting to see how these all turn out. I'm way behind but with the rate I've been sewing it may not take me long to catch up. LOL. Swooze, are you still doing one too?

My 150th post will be coming up soon. I'm going to have a small giveaway or 2. Keep watching!

You make such lovely quilts and so quickly too... A little girl will love to have this to snuggle with. Great job!
