    Every year, each member of one of the guilds that I belong to makes comfort quilts to be donated to one of several charities....these are my contributions for this year.

    These were strip quilts done in a quilt as you go method...my first time trying QAYG...I loved that it was pretty much done once I got all the strips on and just needed to be bound!!!

    Hang tight for pics....my computer is being a little fussy today!! Whew....they're loaded!!

    I have found any number of times now that when I don't see a picture, I can click on the user name, then click on their lists, call up the post again, and Voila! - there is the picture. This one was no exception. :)

    Very nice quilts -- nice easy pattern and QAYG is a quick way to finish them. It is great that you are doing comfort quilts.
