    Double slice layer cakes for charity

    Thought you might like to see my Christmas quilts. These are so fast and fun to put together.

    The first one is called The Candy Quilt with a little whimsy. You'll see why when you see what I did to the back for fun.Name:  P1010696(1).JPG

    I actually have 3 or 4 more that I have yet to bind. I like making several tops one after the other, then I can quilt them on the long arm, one after another.

    Beautiful gifts from the heart to be given for Christmas to strangers! You are such a kind and generous person. You really represent the "Spirit of Christmas"!! I know "casting your bread on the water" will come back to you in so many ways by the blessing you are to others. God bless you...

    Love the double slice pattern. I seldom repeat a pattern but this is one I have made many times. Fun to shop my stash and make my own layer cake. Also love your backings. Lots of creativity there!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
