    Hi everybody! I want to thank all of you for your overwhelming response to my post for my Mom. I greatly appreciate it. Here are some pictures of a few of her donation quilts that I went over and took yesterday.

    When she gets these scraps that people are sending and makes up some quilts, I will post pictures of them so you can see what she made with them.

    Again, Thank You all for helping!

    Pretty, huh?

    A Large lap robe or throw. It's a Mile-A-Minute variation.

    Another Blurry close-up. As you can see from these close ups, she uses very small scraps too!

    This is actually a doll quilt. Mom donates them to the church for the day care section.

    These are great! I never thought of donating quilts for day care dollies. Just this morning made a quick quilt for my GD stuffed kitty!

    Thank you everybody. I will let you know when my Mom receives your scraps. She gets so much joy out of quilting and then donating. That is really all she does anymore.
    Thanks again!

    I'm glad you posted again. I pulled out some scraps for you, but then forgot who it was that wanted them. Duh!!! PM me with your address and I'll send them on their way. Just remind me what it is you want. Brain isn't working too well these days! !

    Your DM does fantastic work and has a lot of detail in them!! I wonder if I'll recognize the fabric that I sent her in any of the quilts when she gets them done! Thanks for the pics!

    Your mom is quite the quilt maker. I especially like the idea on the 9 patch to put an extra row of 3 on the sides to make it wider. Never thought of that. What a great way to use up scraps!! I'm using mine for tops for a local church who ties them and donates to a Christian missionary. Either way, let's warm up the world, dolls, stuffed animals and all!

    Go Detroit Tigers!

    If you will give me an address I have lots of scraps that would make lovely quilts for someone.
