I was given beautiful hand sewn 40 antique Dresden blocks and 256 pieces that are 7" . After I make 2 throws using 24 of the blocks I don't know what do do with the remaining 16 blocks and all the pieces. Is there a good charity to give 1 of the throws to do auction off to benefit the charity. Any suggestions as to what to do with the blocks would be appreciated. I don't mind hand quilting them myself.

Her bed is an XL Twin, so I had to add 26" to the overall pattern, just to get it the size of her mattress. When I asked about how much she wanted hanging down the sides and end, she didn't want any, but I added

My daughter loves the black/white/red one. I'd like to make it for her college graduation but need a pattern!

I changed mine up a little and instead of 4 different Christmas fabrics I used 2. I like the way it turned out. The white part I quilted using my walking foot.

Each year the quilt store sells a fat eighth of challenge fabric to those who are interested in making a block. All the money goes to a local charity and the quilt made from the finished blocks gets raffled off the next year with those proceeds going to the same charity. All of the 12

A kind word we say and then forget but the person it was said to remembers it for years. A few coins given to a stranger who was in the grocery line ahead of us and we helped out because they needed less than a dollar to have enough to pay for their milk and bread. We donít remember it much past when it actually happens but the recipient remembers it always because it meant her child got to have a glass of milk with his peanut
As all of you know who wade through my blogs regularly, I make quilts. Sometimes by request, sometimes for charity work, sometimes to pick up a few shekels of extra spending money. Several months back when I posted pictures of quilts on my Facebook page a man Iíve known for years bought a log cabin snuggle quilt for his wife. When he came to pick it up he talked to me about his six granddaughters. Yes, you read that correctly, six! Made me think of Psalm 127:4-5 King James Version (KJV)
