Making Quilts

I guess I will never run out of quilt ideas and quilt inspiration. I used to think that some day I would feel that I'd done it all and that I could stop. Nope, I don't think that will happen. Even simple squares are so pleasing, I like to make simple quilts to give away, as well as complicated (to a point, of course) to keep or to give away. I'm so glad I found this fun hobby to fill up my life!

Here's a simple one. I did not make this quilt. It was in a pile at the church where I sometimes join the sewing group. They have some tops that are waiting to be quilted, so I took this small one to finish. Here it is, done and ready to go back to church, eventually to be given to a child who needs comforting. I like how cuddly and cute this one turned out as a finished quilt. (Better than I expected, to be honest.) My cousin is the pastor and will be handing it out. I like that.

Another way I like to contribute to quilts is to make blocks. I send them to Sunshine once a month, and they are used in quilts for kids. It feels good to have a part in making a quilt, without taking the time to do the entire process.

Tomorrow I am hoping to find time to do more quilting work. Doesn't that sound like fun??

Yes, it does sound like fun. (like the idea of sending blocks rather than whole quilts!)
