    August Donations

    I turned in two quilts and an afghan today to the cancer center. I was reluctant to relinquish this Hunters Star... I just love it. But I have no room to store more quilts at my apartment I always put a special label on the back. The backing fabric was too gold, so I used the wrong side of it. The sad part of it is that the cancer center gives them all away so quickly... each new patient gets one. I forgot to take a picture of the afghan after the squares were sewn together.

    What a special thing you are doing. I am sure they are loved by the recipients. Cancer is so scary.

    I would have had a hard time parting with the hunters star too-Really nice! Love the fabric you used on the disappearing 9 patch. I am sure the patients are grateful for your generosity :-)

    Very nice quilts and afghan for the cancer center. It was always so cold when I went with my sister for her treatments.

    Our church makes "prayer quilts" from 6.5" squares in lap quilt size. They are donated to folks who are ill, need a comfort quilt, etc. Both my husband and I received one each when we had unanticipated open heart surgery. We use them all the time. I helped make many of them, so was delighted to get one for our use. They are used every day.

    You are a very generous person to share your time and talents with those going through a tragic time in their lives.
    I used one I made with a minky backing, as I was always so cold.
