These quilts are being sent to a women's and children's homeless shelter in Kansas. The one on the right is from a Yellow Brick Road pattern and you can see that design in the teal and the purple. I ran out of the white and purple strings and didn't have any more fabric to make them so I added the pink strings I'd had on hand. The girl who received this really liked it. Actually the quilt looked better than the picture. In hind sight, I should have ripped the strings apart and placed them differently, but I was trying to make a deadline for some women displaced by the floods.

This happy quilt is a result of my error. I started making blocks for a lotto in Lovestitin4charity and somehow I didn't notice the fabric on some was the wrong side out. I didn't want to pick out all that I'd done so I kept these back and made them into a quilt. It's now ready to be gifted. After quilting it, I can no longer see the places the fabric was inside out. It is such a bright fun quilt and I added the cutest pick polka dot backing.

This quilt is ready to be bound and then gifted. I love the way the blocks look and I had it professionally quilted. I was going to send it to Moab to go to the quilts4cancer, but didn't get it done in time and I sent another. The binding will be in the blue from the backing. It started out as four squares that were donated to the Syracuse Seniors Humanitarian Quilters. I found some black sparkle fabric and used to bring the size up. The gold was in my stash and as there was gold in the blue squares it seemed like a good match. Found a wonderful sort of Asian print on Fabric.com to use for the back. I finally sent it to a young man struggling with cancer. Hope that it brings him warmth and love.
