    Perfect for table cloths. Local quaint tea room uses quilt tops, a favorite treat for girls chit chat lunch.

    also known historically as "summer quilts."

    any pictures? love to see them !

    Call or visit the local Hospital and ask if they would like some of your little quilts for their children patients.
    By the way, they wash the quilts often, so be sure to zig-zag over the binding maybe twice, so they won't come apart.
    Or ask your local library if they would like to have them for a raffle to raise money to buy some kids books ?- or for decoration on their walls? -or for the kids to sit on during story time?
    Some places the fire department and/or police like little quilts to wrap around kids involved in accidents. They carry them stashed in the car trunks or fire engines, "just in case". They often carry soft stuffed animals they can give the kids too.
    I have actually explored many charities in this area and so many have requirements of sizes or only take blocks or just want you to make one of their kits. I have been making small security size quilts from my leftover fabrics and scraps. Project Linus is one that appealed to me and I have not been able to get help to contact them. I appreciate any other ideas and will explore a few more I am sure before I find someone willing to take my offerings. Thank you for your help.

    Once word gets out that you are interested in doing this kind of thing, people will call you and you will be busy. Smiles. It might be a bit slow at first, but then you will find yourself with plenty to do.
