I helped Jade make couple quilts for the kids.
These were made while in TX , Finished since we got home on the long arm machine.. A learning curve ! Then shipped back to the Tip O Tx park for the various Good Deeds the sewing groups there do.
The following are tops that I didn't get finished before the end of the year and were then sent with out the batting to a mission in Poland.. A woman there finishes them.
The 7 above were sent to Poland.
while on the Facebook I saw a pic of a guy cutting salesman samples and silly me asked what they did with the leftovers,, the cut offs. The reply was they donate them to some quilter ladies. ......well Hey ! Im a quilter lady !..
The Hoffman Company sent me a very nice bundle of their end cuts. They were then cut, sewn, and quilted into 3 quilts. What fun to work with all those colors.
Shell and Scott recvd this for Christmas.
Also from the pattern Garnet Trace.. done in many pale blues and chocolate brown. This grew into a good sized quilt and was gifted to a family friend a proud soldier.
One of the first I tried to quit on the big long arm. It is made from a floral panel yardage found in Paducah.
Linda and I spruced up the basement with My Sunshine found in flee market while in TX.
Pink Shopping totes with some bright fabric Shell found that matches her purse.
from floral panels found in Paducah.. gifted to Linda for Christmas.
much of the sewing for soldiers done at the Tip O Tx park is done with fabric precut for us and kitted up. I think I did 3 of these while there.
Remy's quilt, assembled really fast as she arrived before the rest of us were ready ! 3 lbs and a fighter.. Doing wonderfully now.
a blue braid top was done.
One of the many pre kitted quilt tops made for Ronald McDonald house in TX,, I think I did 6 of these while there.
skinny 1.5" strips .. later gifted to grand nephew.
The new longarm machine ! I was searching for a treadle... loll... and came with this instead.. Yaeeee.. hopefully More and Bigger Better things will come from my GoodDeed project I started in 06.
the tally: 3 auction, 6 soldier, 3 personal soldiers, 11 family, 7 sent to Poland, 6 sent back to Tx. 12 donated while still in TX.
