    I just enjoy making them and give them to my church because the pastor and my church family seems to really love my work. Our church is only a few years old and the walls looked so bare to me. 2 years ago, I made a "Fruit of The Spirit" quilt and that started it all. LOL They keep asking for more! Next I made a "Lords Prayer", and I'm ...

  4. Donated quilts and IRS

    by , 11-17-2013 at 05:26 AM
    Does anyone else make quilts specifically to donate? Last year I sent 30 quilts (twin bed size) and 15 pillows to a children's cancer support group and when I did my taxes (credit for donations) I was only able to deduct a few dollars for each quilt. Each quilt had at least $50 worth of materials without counting thread and time actually quilting and binding (and not counting the $130 postage to mail all the packages).

    This year I made 17 to give to my local children's hospital. ...

    The top quilt, which I called Irish Stars as it was an irish chain with stars, is the first one I actually finished, in 2008. I made it as a baby quilt for a friend - it's really big for a baby quilt, but this kid was the 5th kid and needed to be able to cuddle siblings as well as mom and baby! My first quilt still needs binding. I think I need to give up and give it away.Made the bottom quilt last year for a lady at church for her 99th birthday. She passed away last month and I miss her. ...

It increased my interest & enthusiasm. And the dry spell was over. Don't stress!
