    New Mexico Kid's Club Quilts from Donor Fabrics

    Ok, hope this works! These are some quilts we've done including the 3 year long Queen size that the Las Colcheras guild in Las Cruces finished up and quilted for us. All our quilts are made totally from donations.

    Blessings to you for spending time teaching these kids to sew! It's always so fun watching them get excited over what they've made.
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....

    Hey Kate! They came out GREAT!! The folks on this board are awesome for helping out with boxes of goodies. Just think, a few short years back you had no idea how to make a quilt. I remember when you joined your first swap from over at the other place. I-spy squares!

    Thank you all, I'll be uploading some more pics and we really do appreciate the donations. School will be out the end of May so mail to the school will be held up until we return towards the end of July. Coyote I remember that swap, it took me a week to cut out simple squares lol! We picked up another local charity to support at the awards ceremony I went to for the grants I wrote; it is a shelter for homeless women and children in El Paso. We will be donating our last quilts and crochet items there in a couple of weeks. Thanks to all the donations I will be able to send fabric home with all the club members this summer that are able to use them. I will be giving one student who has been with me since the beginning 3 years ago one of the sewing machines we got on a Donorschoose.org project during that year. She makes gorgeous quilts but has no chance of affording a sewing machine so I am going to make sure she can keep on quilting, she loves it. Her little sister will be with me for the next 3 years so she'll be able to use it too. Thanks again!
