Please take a moment to read Lori’s post today (Humble Quilts). It is about some of the charitable work she has been doing lately. She is one of the most “giving” people I know (well, we haven’t actually met in person yet, but I know we will someday). I think as quilters, we all give of our time and our money to those in need of support. Her post was particularly timely for me as I spent the weekend finishing up some “donation quilts”.
This throw sized 4-patch is going to the National Quilt Museum in Paducah along with a cute little Puss in the Corner made from feedsacks that I forgot to photograph – argh! They have an auction every spring to help finance the museum.
I started a few little ones for our state show this summer where proceeds from the sale will go to the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence and I am almost finished with the binding of a large quilt going to one of our Veteran’s homes. I’ll post photos of those when they are done. Honestly the hardest part of quilting for me is to remember to take photos as I go so I can share them on this blog!
Enjoy your day!
