Friday is here once again - I hope you had a good week! Mine has been very productive - but I couldn't have done any of it without the help of some very good friends!
My first finish for this week is a quilt I made for a woman recently diagnosed with cancer. She likes greens and yellows, and my first thought was the stash of Origins on my shelf. Here's where friends #1 and #2 come in - my friend Cathy of Wondrous Woven Fabrics donated a prize for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival last fall, and my friend Karrie of Freckled Whimsy won! But bless her heart, Karrie told Cathy to send the prize to me for the quilt ministry to use. Two charm packs of Origins and six half yards of coordinating yardage! This is the second quilt we've made using those fabrics, so now I'm down to just scraps of those pretty fabrics.

The really exciting thing about this quilt? It is the 100th quilt we've distributed through our church's quilt ministry!
My second finish is another quilt for the ministry. This one is going to a woman diagnosed with breast cancer. Once again, this quilt is a joint effort.
My friend Kate North over at Kate's Arty Bits Blog sent me some of her beautiful batik blocks that she decided she wasn't going to use herself. This is the first quilt I've put together using those beautiful blocks - and there will be several more!
You may notice in this picture that the binding isn't completely finished - but the sun was shining, and I wasn't taking the chance that it would be shining tomorrow when I had the binding stitched down! Sun has been a rare commodity around here lately..... and never when I need it!!
And one more "friend" shout-out - take a look at all the beautiful fabric and scraps I received for the quilt ministry this week from my friend Molly over at Stitch-N-Thyme Designs! We will have so much fun putting these to good use!
So that's what I've worked on this week - now it's your turn! Show off your accomplishments, be it a finish, a start, or a clean sewing room! You can link up until Saturday night, and remember to go check out some of your fellow linkers and leave some bloggy love!!!
