    Thank you for looking and for your kind comments. My daughter said I should make some small quilts to sell on Ebay or Craig's list; but I said people already have stuff on those and it isn't selling very well. I guess I'd rather make them to give away to someone that would need them. The company I work for just told us they are shutting down the plant for more days this month, but doing it in a way that we can't get unemployment. So there are going to be alot of sad and upset people this holiday. It is too bad the big shots can't have a heart. Elaine

    Don't worry, you will be repaid many times over for your kindness. The quilts are beautiful, I really liked the rainbow one, but I love bright colors.

    Bless you for being such a giving person.

    Those are beautiful and what a wonderful idea and action to teach your kids! Those girls are gonna love those, they are so cheery and snuggly! Hate to hear of your plant reducing hours...I'm just happy they aren't shutting down! Our little town has only 1 plant and employs just about everyone...I'm worried about it.

    here is a pink and purple flannel quilt . My daughter took all three of the quilts to work and gave them to her friend . She just loved them . And had 2 other people ask about placing an order.

    Blessed are the quilters, for we are all givers and doers. Quilt making would be a great way to supplement your income...

    Oh those are very nice and sorry about the plant shut down, but I always say it comes back 2 fold you just don't know when it will happen but it always does. Good for you and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
