Today I'm linking up with Quilts are for Giving, to share what I've worked on recently in the "giving away quilts" arena.
My local guild has taken on a couple of community projects; one is called Bundles of Love. They provide newborn necessities to families in need, mostly through hospitals. Families get a bundle which includes a blanket or quilt, diapers, diaper bag, newborn clothes and other getting-started necessities, almost all of it hand-made. We did a presentation to Bundles of Love at a recent meeting and expected about 50 quilts, but we actually collected -- TA-DA -- 100 quilts!! We are working with Bundles of Love for one more year, so I better get busy making my share of next year's 100.
This is a top I made from scraps that were given to me.. as I worked on it, I kept getting overdosed on orange. I had to stop looking at it for a while, and come back to it the next day. I managed to get the top made, but I'm still not sure about orange quilts. I hope to get it quilted soon, and maybe it'll come to life then. This will also go to Bundles of Love.
