I finally dropped off 3 quilts to the local chapter of the Red Cross. I felt so shy and awkward about it. I don't really have a lot of confidence when it comes to my quilts (I feel like an amateur compared to others) and I kinda like anonymity. Truth be told, I haven't been sewing too much lately. What I did manage though:
I cut out pieces from some old Art Gallery Fabric to make a purse as well as some farmer's wife blocks. I got binding put on the top of my garden fence quilt (picture was taken pre-quilting and binding):
Now I am on to hand stitching the back on.
I did a little work on my "Elephant Dreams" quilt. Here is an old photo which includes the little drawing I came up for it:
I plan to hand embroider him on this next week (fingers crossed).
I also made a block for Kilah and got it mailed off. I have a little girl who is about her age so this story really
devastated me. 3 year olds are just so fantastically full of life and
overflowing with personality. I pray that her little spirit recovers as
well as her body. Quilts are so medicinal that I think this special
one being made with so much love for her will help boost her spirit and
bring a little comfort. If you haven't heard about Kilah's story and the quilt project you can find out more about it here:
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
