Last October when I first joined the Guild, I took it upon myself to take a bunch of orphaned blocks home to turn into a Community Service Quilt!
(insert scratching head, what was I thinking??)
These are some of the blocks that came home with me. I had to think about how to put these together, which took a lot of time…..fast forward….
April top is completed. When my mom was here visiting, she wanted to see me ‘do’ some quilting. so i put these blocks together, sandwiched it and started to quilt it. Then life got busy and it sat. Fast forward again
I quilted it last week. I even managed to dive into free motion feathers. I love the look of them but was always intimated by the process. I persevered and dove in to get them done. Once I got the rhythm of the motion they weren’t too bad after all. I do need to practice some more but I now look forward to doing more. I don’t know where this quilt will end up, but I hope it brightens someone’s life.
The rest of the little 9 patches went into this preemie quilt for the neo natal unit our hospitals.
I feel good about contributing to those in need or who just need comfort. Have you done any charity stitching lately?
