    Signature quilt all finished & delivered!

    Talk about running the clock. I took this quilt with me to a very windy & cold football game last night. I sat in the stands with my needle and thread and started the binding at 6:50 (40 min before the game started) and I finished the last stitch with 23 sec. left in the game. It was our last game of the season and I was giving it to the little girls dad which was our radio broadcaster at the game.

    The quilt was made of 6X6 squares of different fabric of all the things the dad told me his daughter liked. I also put in a big S for our school South and had all the boys on the football team to sign it. I quilted around the S to make it stick out more and also to allow her to collect more signatures if she wanted.

    As fellow quilters u all know how people are always asking u to make quilts for them and they say they will pay you. I have never done that because I enjoy quilting and I enjoy gifting them even more.

    The older girl in the picture is who I made it for. She had lung cancer at a very young age, they removed her lung , went through chemo & is now cancer free!

    Absolutely perfect! Doing special quilts where they are "needed" is wonderful! The expression on the girls' faces is your "thank you"! I also have never taken money for a quilt; I don't have time to make a quilt I will worry about (and I would, every step of the way if it was commissioned). Actually, I don't seem to have time to make all the quilts, in timely fashion, that seem to be needed. I'd like to get some sent to the Sandy victims, but first I have to finish the bed quilt for DH and myself. He is 80 and we've never kept a quilt, except one which is a wall hanging.

    That is precious, and so are the little girls. What a wonderful thing to do.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    I can't imagine quilting a binding on a quilt in the time of a football game. It would take me 3 football games to finish it.ha. By the way. I love the quilt.

    Great job! My only thought it the other little girl will want one too. Are you thinking of making her one someday?

    Do you know how you would go about sending quilts for Sandy victims. I have some I'd be happy to share but have no idea how to go about it.

    I think I read that www.equilter.com was going to try to get a donation effort together.

    I also read somewhere that at this point, money is more appreciated because of the logistics of getting the items to the victims. I'm not trying to discourage your generous offer; it's wonderful of you to want to donate quilts. I'm just passing along what I read.
