    I do lots of charity quilts and my favorite one is Quilts Of Valor. I have a huge amount of pictures on my computer but will put up a couple of my favorite ones.

    I sew with a Janome 6600 and quilt with an HQ16 which I bought used a year ago. I do just free motion from the front and have no stitch regulator. I was happy to find this machine and it has made me much more productive.

    Let's see if I can get this to work right.

    Our guild has donated the fabric and finishes for as many as nine each year for the past four years.
    It is a simple brick path pattern ... ya know what they say about many hands in one quilt. We needed to keep the pattern simple. Such a joy to make and give.

    I like them all. That's an impressive photo of your guild. That would be nice in a frame in your sewing room. I like your work.

    I love the quilts. Warm Wishes is my favorite but then I am partial to blue. I admire you for what you are doing. My quilt club has just started making quilts for charities. They are to benefit people in need. I love it.

    Love your quilts! Working on one myself and hope to have it quilted by July 4th but being a hand quilter it sometimes takes longer than expected. We have two nephews in the service. Thanks for what you do!
