    These are a few of my most recent lap quilts I've made for H.O.P.E. - our local cancer support network.

    Someone asked me how many I've made, so I counted my pictures and I was shocked to realize that I've made 25 quilts so far! I usually work on 4-5 at a time - assemble line - and I had completely lost track of how many I've done.

    Unfortunately, H.O.P.E. gets 3-4 new patients to serve every week, and I love to make a new quilt for as many as I can!

    Bj,

    You're right, there isn't any binding. I layer the quilt right sides together and sew all around the edge leaving an opening to turn it right side out. Then I sew the opening closed. This way I don't need extra material to bind with.

    Thank your for bringing comfort to so many in need. The quilts are beautiful and I'm sure they cheer each one who receives it. You're an angel and I hope you're richly blessed.
