    My latest charity quilts

    Here are 4 quilts I am sending to the Vermont flood victims of September floods. The 2 masculine quilts are flannel with fleece backing.

    Fabulous...I love the first one. The red squares just make the quilt sparkle.

    I would gladly take the "woodsy" one off your hands. I can just feel the warmth of a fireplace, looking at that quilt.

    Beautiful gifts not because they are beautifully done (which they are), but because of the thought! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks everyone, for the kind words. My family has been blessed with many material things. I have never purchased gifts except when my kids and grandkids were little and in the toy stage. They have all received at least one quilt from me. I decided this year that there wasn't anything I could give them that they didn't already have. And what better way to say what Christmas is all about than to give a gift from the heart. I have been blessed with a gift (my ability to quilt) and feel it is my duty to use that gift in the best way I can. So what better way than to give to the unfortunate victims of whatever suffering has been brought upon them. I also feel that this is a good lesson for my grandchildren to learn...that gifts are supposed to come from the heart, not the pocketbook, or mall. They will each get a card with a picture of the quilt I donated in his/her name and the name and goal of the charity. After all, the 3 Wisemen didn't run to the mall when they saw the star in the sky; they gave what they had.

    Oh Grann of 6,
    They are absolutely wonderful. You are one of the most thoughtful person's that I know of. You make such lovely things for those in need. I am sure they will be deeply appreciated. Thank you for caring.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!
