    Thank you for your kind words. :)

    I have 14 years of scraps, it's going to take me quite awhile to use them all up to start a new scrap bin....but I'm sure trying. lol :)

    All my scrap buster quilts are for the Wrap them in Love Foundation. They send donated quilts to children in orphanages, the sad part is that a lot of these children are HIV and will never leave the orphanage. :(

    I just love your quilts!
    I think it's great you donate them to the kids. Yes, it is sad, but at least they are "wrapped in love" from someone who ENJOYS making them.

    Awesome! And I mean that for both the quilt and what you do with them. It sure makes you feel good to do something for children who were dealt such a crappy hand in life. You are a wonderful lady.

    I agree, I think this one is my favorite! (Yeah, I know, I probably say that about all of them!) But I really think this one is special. Well Done!

    Shadow, you are wonderful. Must give you some satification to know that you are making someone happy and that your stash is also getting smaller. How about a picture of your stash.......so we can all drool.

    Also another thing you have done is inspire me to try things I thought I couldn't do. I started on the strip twist yesterday and am having fun laying them out to see how they should go together. Have lots more to sew, but thank you. Finding out that things aren't as hard as they look. Since I am basically self taught, I am slower I guess.

    Beautiful! Just like the lady who makes them and wraps so many children in love. I just have one question--Do you ever sleep? You can't and make so many quilts.
