Some Quilts for Kids

I had five quilts to bind, which always takes a bit of time. It's not my favorite part of quilt-making. I'm glad to say they are all done and the quilts can now be on their way to warm up some children.

Beth P. sent me a huge pile of pre-cut scraps, and I made this... and several more which will appear in time. This one is going to Quilts Beyond Borders.

This baby one I made as a distraction to myself when some other chore wasn't fun any more. I'll probably donate it to Bundles of Love through my local guild.

This is another baby size quilt. It was a sample I bought at a quilt shop and then had someone else quilt it. The only thing I did on this quilt was the binding. I am sending it to a friend who will make sure it gets donated to the Fond du Lac Reservation's Annual Baby Shower.

This one is also going to Fond du Lac Reservation. It was made from my guild's community service blocks and donated fabric.

This one is made from my scraps. It will go to Quilts Beyond Borders.

And that completes my most recent quilt finishes. Now on to all those other projects waiting in line... stay tuned.

Finished binding! What a success. I have been working on a binding on my most recent QOV...only about 5 feet to go. That will be a celebration.

Great job and some pretty quilts. I do the binding all by machine on most baby quilts and on about half of my lap/couch quilts. I do hand finish the binding on more than half of my quilts.

How satisfying it must be to know that your wonderful quilts are being enjoyed by those who need extra support and care. They will be well-loved. Good for you!

Wow! You got a lot accomplished. Is that hubby helping with the photo shoot? And does that quilt with all the words have the days of the week on the fabric? Fun.
