Wednesday Witterings

Although I haven't posted much I have been busy.  Thursday Lorri2Rs and I dropped off seven quilts with the Donation Quilt Coordinator for my guild.  

Four Tops were made by Liz in Houston--she sent them to me to quilt and bind.  She's a prolific quilter and loves to work with MAM or crumb blocks.  Her Art Quilt looks like broken pieces of film to me.  Thank you Liz!!

Three were made by me.  The Star Quilt has been waiting to find a home, and I finished the Bricks and Stepping Stones and Pieces of Eight recently.  These finishes used 37 yds of fabric.  All are about 75x90".  These quilts are going to McCrossan Boys Ranch--a group home for teenage boys.  When a boy completes and leaves the program, he is allowed to take "his" quilt with him.  I like that.  Thank you Don for holding the quilts for me.

Quilters are giving people.  When Stashbusters (Yahoo group) found out I was making boy quilts, several people sent me tops to quilt and/or sent backings!  Some even came with premade bindings.  Most of them are quilted and the bindings need hand sewing.  A few tops will have to wait until fall when I get back to quilting.  So--although I wasn't blogging I was hard at work.  I fell in love with these quilts and I hope some boy loves them as much as I did!

What's not to love the quilts are fabulous! I thought the same thing about the Art quilt - snips of photos or film. The boys are going to treasure all the quilts.

Beautiful quilts and such a great place to send them.

These quilts will all be treasured. My son-in-law worked at McCrossan about 9 years ago.
