    Kids' quilts ready...

    As some of you know, I have been working on making a dozen quilts for kids in cancer units that our KEYS group visits to entertain. I finished them and they are ready for delivery.
    They are mostly made from orphan blocks, scraps and such that I have gotten from some board members. I hope you recognize things I got from each of you and approve of what I've done with them. Here are photos of the ones using things I have repurposed.

    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.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    You have been busy. It would take me forever to make that many. A labor of love and the children will love them and be wrapped in love.

    Wow! Those are incredible. What a great use of scraps. I am so happy some of my scraps made it into your quilts.
    Ive been creating more scraps lately. They are so hard to keep under control.

    I'm glad you are busy making more scraps, lol. I hope to make 12 more kids' quilts over the rest of the year... wink wink!

    Your heart is surely in the right place! The kids will love them and, hopefully, wear them out in the process.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Great work you are doing, both with the quilts and commitment to comforting children who are being treated for cancer. Angels are hovering over you.
