For others


Keeping my commitment to the quilt guild, I've been working on charity quilts for our community quilts program.   The guild only asks for one quilt per member per year, but I always like to do several.   This is also another way to get the stale fabrics out of my stash.  Many of these have been hanging around for over 10 years and it was time for them to go!  I have at least 2 more of these simple quilts worth of patches to sew up.  I was also trying out some Quilter's Dream wool batting  and decided I just don't like working with it.  It's nice and cozy in the quilt though.  I will use up what I have for these donation quilts and go back to Dream Cotton for most purposes.  I'm still trying to decide if I prefer the Dream Cotton Request or Tuscany Silk for hand quilting.  Both needle nicely.  More on other quilting project coming up!
