    tops pieced for victims of fetilizer plant in West, Tx

    So....had a three day sister's crafty weekend and have been able to put these tops together. Some are results of boomarang block swaps, a couple completed UFO'S, and others pieced starting from scratch. I am officially exhausted so wont start layering and quilting until next weekend....this is also a must as I neex to go buy batting before I can do anything else. It is very rewarding to have had the time to get these done!!!!

    Thank you all for looking...I will update after they are layered and quilted. After these are completed, I plan to evaluate how many more I can do before early June. Working full time as well is my challenge..... My hubby and I are considering a yard sale with all procedes going to recovery efforts as well.
