I received an email from one of the charities I support that they were in need of some larger sized quilts. As I was pulling a few from the stacks of quilts that cover every surface in my house, I realized how fortunate I am to have so many wonderful friends and clients. Because of their generosity, I am able to donate a large number of quilts each year.
Why? Because they give me their bits and pieces!
This quilt I just finished sewing on the binding is a perfect example.
It started out as some strip sets that were left over from a client's project.
I added them to some other leftover fabric that was given to me to create these scrappy blocks.
There was even enough fabric to create a scrappy border.
Because I have a longarm, quilting is never a big obstacle for me.
This one was quilted with the Popcorn pantograph.
And I finally found a home for another old stash piece I thought I would never use.
(Insert happy dance....)
Maybe these quilts from bits and pieces will never win any awards but the generosity behind them certainly makes them special. A big heartfelt thanks to all those who support my orphan block and scrap addiction.
Hopefully these quilts will be give comfort to someone who needs it! (I just wish there wasn't such a demand...)
A side note to my friends and clients....Please! This is not a solicitation for more enabling. While I am sure it is fun to see my eyes light up when you arrive with "treasures", there is only so much room in my house. Please keep the "treats" to a minimum or I will get absolutely nothing accomplished! :)
Happy Friday Everyone!
