    These are some of the Charity quilts I have been making. They were fun since most of them went together easily and I was done quickly - Love instant gratification! The heart one was my very first quilt - that has been in a drawer for about 20 years. I did the binding and off it goes.

    Your quilts are so nice and they will bring much needed comfort to someone. You are a very generous and caring person to share your fabrics and talents.

    Great quilts! But you should keep the heart one since it's your first! You'll miss it after having it for 20 years!!

    Very nice of you to make these. Will they go to tornado victims? There are so many reasons for making these that we could be stitching day and night. Foster kids, military families, storm victims, etc.

    Keep sewing...you're doing a great job.

    There are several local charities that I will donate to. One is Birth Choice...they help single Moms who choose to keep their children. They teach them about parenting and how to make better choices in the future.

    I was planning to donate to a nursing home until I heard that many of the people have their items stolen, so maybe an Assisted Living would be better. Our church goes to one every month. Only problem is I would want to have one for everyone who wants one...that is not going to happen by me alone.

    You have a good eye for color! All of the quilts are very eye appealing!
