    Charity "Bingo" quilt

    Sorry for the long explanation, but here goes. My daughter came home from college last year & asked if I could donate something to be given away at bingo games that was a unisex item, at the retirement home she did volunteer work for at college. I went through some things & out came a box of squares my mother (who had pasted away a year before) had put together, but had gone no farther with. I knew she would be happy to see them get made up into a quilt & given to a charitable cause, as she had made many charity quilts in her life. I knew why she had never put them together once I started, because they were uneven & some points missing etc... I also made a mistake on the center square, so in order to cover it up, I added the birdhouse applique. But here is the finished product. I'm sure it is keeping some cold legs warm in Jacksonville, IL!

    What a nice prize someone is going to win. And, I love the applique.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Love it....the birdhouse makes it extra special. Your mother would be very pleased with what you made with her blocks.

    Good for you!! Not only finishing a quilt your mother had started, but doing it for a good cause!
