    Church charity quilts delivered

    Yesterday we delivered a year's worth of church quilts (50+) to local charitable organizations. The shelves at church look bare now but we'll begin filling them up again soon !

    Your quilting group just put a smile on 50 faces. Bless you all.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Fantastic! Part of the pleasure of giving them away is that you get to make more!

    My Daughter and I donated about 40-45 quilts to a local food pantry a week ago. Along w/crocheted items (hers).
    The quilts were mostly mine. Most were made this year - various sizes and some I had made in recent years. Have started again for next year. Mainly scrappy quilts.

    I applaud your work and the work of others that created 50+ quilts for charity. I'm sure the quilts will be well received. When I was attending a quilt guild (I've since moved) the guild made quilts for "David's House", a residential home similar to a Ronald McDonald's house adjacent to a large area hospital that treated kids with many problems, including some that were terminal. I enjoyed doing it, as it gave me a chance to experiment with different blocks, patterns, etc. plus when we received pictures of the quilt with the recipients, it always made me feel good.

    Details about your organization. How many members? How often do you meet? Who chooses quilt designs etc.
    I might be interested in starting a group.

    We meet twice a month and we are a group of about 7 or 8. Many of the quilt tops are made at home and brought to church to be tied. Some never sew, but help with the tying. We have much donated fabric and we also have a budget to buy batting and fabric. Sewing machines belong to the church. I know other churches have quilt groups and meet weekly, its whatever is set up.

    When I was a young single mother with 3 kids we lived in cheap apartment with bad heating and we got one of the church quilts for Christmas one year and I bless those ladies as much as whoever gets your quilts will bless you!! I ask Gods blessing on all of you for doing this or others!
