    Charity Quilts

    I sewed 6 quilt tops at my last retreat. Yesterday, I got two of them quilted. I used the serpentine stitch on my machine elongating it some and as wide as my machine allows 7.0 . Since I hope to turn them in on Monday, I'd better get going on the rest
    I love that there are hearts on the backing as these are for the local cancer center

    Nice! I love the colors you chose for the first quilt.

    Such a worthwhile project. Do they require a certain size. Lost two of my best friends to cancer and would be interested in making some for our local hospital. Thanks, grammasharon

    Beautiful! They will be much appreciated. I love pastel one so much.

    Nicely done! These will be so appreciated. I like the stitch you used too. Wish my machine had it.

    I called the cancer center to ask what size they prefer... the centers are not all the same. Our center prefers 3'x4'. I also make knit and crochet ones for them because I can do that lying down when I'm resting.

    great charity quilts. I love the serpentine stitch for straight stitching areas
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I love the way you used the serpentine stitch! I'm gonna try it on my next project.

    Sounds like a productive retreat...I have not yet had the opportunity to attend a retreat but I doubt I would be able to get 6 quilt tops done. Lovely charity quilts.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Neat work and sure to be useful and enjoyed by the recipients. Bless you for donating your work.
