    What a wonderful idea. Sounds like your quilts carry a tiny bit of magic. I made a rag quilt for my grandchildren to use when they stay with us. I use it when they are not here.

    Nice little quilts but just love your idea of having the squares made and quilted ahead. I'm going to have to steal that idea, thanks.

    Great quilts for thoughtful causes! I have been wanting to make some rag quilts and bought the 8" die for my AccuQuilt Go cutter to make it easier. My sweet daughter gave me the 5" rag die for Christmas. Your idea for preparing blocks a few at a time would make it easier to have a block 'stash' ready for quick gifts. Thanks for showing your neat quilts and giving me a great hint!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You are such a kind and thoughtful person and your quilts are great.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Your quilts are definitely loving hugs-to-go! I recently got the rag dies for Accuquilt Go...you make me want to get busy on the stash of flannel I have collected!
