    So pretty. Great quilting. I love that your group works it out so some do piecing, some quilting, some binding. And I love that you are so kind and generous. The children who receive these will know that someone really does care.

    Very pretty quilt and great quilt!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    What a great system. I'd love to be the one doing the bindings. It's probably my favorite quilting task after the cutting. This quilt is beautiful and your quilting makes it even more special.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    The binding is my least favorite and I never hand sew them, so when they tell me they have someone who will do the binding I am very happy to just do the quilting, which is what I love to do! We all get to do what we like and feel good about donating to the kids.

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

    Wow, you are busy and again thank you. Went to hear a singer in concert last night and he is one of eight adopted children. He was such a good singer and said he had ADD. His younger sister (13) has MS and they have been working and waiting and watching with her. Part of the time her prognosis isn't good. How special are the ones who take special needs children.
