    Wow! what a great idea. Love Raggedy Ann & Andy. I save stuff like that in hopes of using in another way. I showed this to my daughter. She said yes, you save thing and never do anything with them.

    Haha! Yes, I would've told my mother the same thing! But am so thankful she saved these things so I could do something with them! Blush, blush that's what daughters are for :oops: ;-)

    Very clever use of vintage calender :thumbup: That turned out so cute. The 'hearts/arrow' would look good in a vintage crazy quilt block - IMHO :D

    Thank you so much, alapetitechaise!! I hope the information I supplied will help you!

    For those who might be interested, here's further info on the mini:

    - the mini will be up for auction on 6/24 in Nevada at a pizza palace

    - proceeds will go to the Children's Heart Disease Foundation

    - you may contact Cheryl Rearick on our board if you're interested in bidding or having someone bid for you.

    Cheryl will be posting a pic of the quilts she receives, but because I wanted you to see before and after pics of the mini is the reason I posted here first. The mini will be going to her soon along with some other minis.

    Thanks everyone for your interest! n2. :D :D ;)

    n2scraplvr:, This is so very beautiful. I so appreciate you doing this for (Children's Heart Disease CHD) Foundation. This as you know is a new foundation getting on it's feet. It will help parents have food while staying with their very sick child in another town. One would think all would just have money for food, it does not usually work that way. So very sad. I am blessed you have chosen to be a part of making this a reality... Not many trust new foundations. WE so thank you very very much. http://www.samuelserenashope.com/
    I am only one person here quilting, Some have so graciously sent materials and some baby quilts, along with runners, your wall hanging will blend in so beautifully. For those who sent material, I may not be able to post a made quilt this round, but there will be other auctions and sales throught the year and I will be kept busy using all that was given from their hearts. WE really are blessed.
    n2- I hug you from my heart. praise the Lord for your kindness. ((((hugs)))

    Cute idea. I had many of these towels that I stored away and just last year I made a king size quilt using mine. Some were different sizes, so I had to cut some but, it started with 1987 through 2010. It is very different, but has a special meaning, because these were gifts from family members.
