Donation Quilt...one step closer!


The final applique block for the center of my guild's next donation quilt came in the mail yesterday!  Can finally get the middle together and start work on the inner borders...

I think this will be a fun quilt and will raise some funds for Camp Rainbow - a camp run by a local hospital for children with cancer and other illnesses that require medical supervision.

Tomorrow I go to Atlanta for a wool applique class on Saturday.  It is just a bit too far to drive there and back in one day.  Besides it gives me an excuse to visit some fabric stores!

I played with wools and buttons a bit this week.  Needed a quiet project that didn't involve running to the sewing machine or ironing board.  I'm going to do a bit more stitching on this and then maybe make a small wall hanging.  The photo peeking out on the right (what to add to plain shortbread cookies...as if butter and sugar isn't good enough!)

Your donation quilt is just beautiful! Great job, ladies! If you will be shopping in ATL, do you know about Intown Quilters? Just went a few weeks a go and did some serious damage.

I loved your donation quilt so much I was FORCED to buy the pattern..LOL! Did you let each person making the block use their own grays or did you make kits or what? Really pretty!
