    Charity Quilts

    Determined to make sure I stay on task and complete the UFO's I had started for Quilts Beyond Borders. Have worked on three, and told myself I could not start something new until I did. So, I am proud of myself. Enjoy looking!

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Nice quilts, and good work, too. I'm sure the recipients will be happy to receive them.

    This was a kit that is precut for log cabin, I purchased it at the Houston market. So easy to do when it is all cut and all you have to do is sew.
