    charity quilt

    our quilting seniors group finished this the other day. the top was donated to us. it appears to have been made by 4 different quilters as 4 sections are clearly different sizes. it contains double knits, corduroy, and a multitude of other fabrics. we tied it and bound it. one side is 4" shorter than the opposite side. but someone will love to cuddle under it... it's really quite cozy.

    That must have been a lot of fun, and a challenge. Bet that quilt is very heavy.

    It will find a good home. A gift from good people.
