Wow, can you believe it - it's Friday again!!! Are you ready to get your whoop whoop on? I know I am!!
It's been a busy week for the quilt ministry, so I'm whooping about all the finished quilts that are going to new homes this week!
Let's start with the baby quilts first...
This pretty little flannel quilt was made by Donetta and Brooke for the new baby of a friend of theirs….
…and this sweet charm quilt was made by Olga for the new baby daughter of a teacher at our local elementary school!
This quilt was made by Mary Ann, and is going to a gentleman in the hospital in Florida with failing health.
And this quilt, its "brother", so to speak, was also made by Mary Ann. It's going to an older gentleman with Parkinson's disease, pneumonia, and other health issues.
This quilt was pieced together by Rita, our current queen of orphan blocks! She is so good at taking little bits and pieces sent to us and putting them together into spectacular quilts! This one is going to an older woman in Pennsylvania who is a 13-year breast cancer survivor, but is now battling lung and ovarian cancer.
And here's Pat with one of her first tops - she's made three in the past week or so! Didn't she do a great job?
And I finally got to do some piecing of my own - hooray!!
This quilt was a kit donated to us by KatieQ
Isn't that pretty? I just love the colors in this.
I've named it Briar Rose!
It was a very windy day when I took these pictures!
And I even pieced the back for this one - haven't done that in a while! This one is going to a woman dealing with some unexpected health issues.
So it was a busy week, but so nice to be working on quilts for others! These are quilts 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 for 2014. So far, we're right on track for making 340 quilts this year to break the 1000 mark!
Oh, and one other great whoop whoop -
I started a new blog for the quilt ministry, to give us a place to tell some of the great stories about the quilts!
If you haven't already dropped by, I hope you will soon!
And now it's your turn!!
What are you dancing the happy dance about this week?
Share! We want to dance along with you -
and it's more fun to dance with friends!
The party will remain open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!!
