    Project Linus quilts presentation

    I am the local Project Linus coordinator for North Wales and today I was presented with 32 quilts today from one of our local quilting groups, aren't they wonderful, I mean the quilts and quilters .

    Their Charity organizer went round our LQS who donated an absolute stack of fabrics, amazing.

    I have been going through them this evening and these ladies have really taken a lot of care and attention to the making of them.

    One Lady did two quilts same tops different fleece backings and her FMQ on both of them is exquisite, and we all know what a swine fleece is!

    The middle quilt in the 2nd photo is the one I am talking about and she did small stippling in all the background leaving the trains etc. clear, amazing.

    It is so exciting to know Project Linus is now all over the world. There are so many hurting, needy children and the Project Linus blankets bring them more joy than we could ever get ourselves from making them.
    THANK YOU FOR SHARING.
    The Portland/Vancouver Chapter here has made around 32,000 blankets for Project Linus. We just completed a TV program that will be shown here in Oregon next month. There is a segment on the web site under "new videos" and is part of the Hawaiian Quilting program. Next month we will post the whole Linus TV program on the web site.

    I just made my first 2 blocks for Project Linus at the Portland show. It was fun to do and knowing it is for a good cause made it even better.

    I found a Project Linus table at our local Quilt Show last month and picked up two kits. Just finished making 3 more kits and working on the binding now. They donate quilts to so many charities that I love, so I will be making many more quilts for PL here in the Dallas, TX area.

    That's great! I'm glad to hear about this.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
