Much of what I sew on a weekly basis is for charity. I am fortunate to sew with ladies every Monday and they produce beautiful quilts from donated scraps and batting. They have big hearts and give generously of their time and talent. Much of what I know is because of them.
We quilt with all age groups in mind. We sew for the tiniest and the elderly. Our quilts will go to whomever and wherever we hear there is a need. Below are just a few of the quilts I have made for charity.
One summer the ladies from the group gave me a LARGE box of assorted 2 1/2 inch squares. Needless to say that after many, many, M A N Y quilts made from those squares I am not rushing to make many more out of 2 1/2 inch squares. I will spare you the details and only show one of them. 😀
Some of the places where charity quilts end up:

- Detroit Veteran’s Hospital
