What's Cookin' at The Sweatshop, Week #22 - It Just Keeps Rolling Along...

Hi, all!

Well, another week has passed, and more quilts have been created and given to folks in need!  Here's what we worked on this week...

Pam made this beautiful batik quilt, which went to a gentleman whose cancer has returned.  He will be undergoing more treatment to try to get it under control.

Look at those beautiful fabrics!

And doesn't Pam do nice backs?  Always a treat for the eyes!!


And remember this sneak peek from earlier this week?  Here's the finished quilt...

Marsha pieced this quilt, which is going to a high school sophomore who has a brain tumor.  Great skateboarding themed fabric and bright colors - we hope this brings him some comfort and cheer!

And our final quilt this week is such a happy quilt, for a happy occasion...

A new baby!  A sweet little girl, born just last week.  The kit for this quilt was donated to us (I think this is right!) by KatieQ, who blogs over at Katie's Salt Marsh Path. Joanna took the kit and put it together.  It's lovely soft flannel...

...and just look at those adorable ballerina bears!  Aren't they cute?

So that's what we've been working on this week!  And it just keeps rolling along - there are six more quilts in the works right now!

Stay tuned, too, for more information on Hands2Help 2012.  I've started working out the details for this year's charity challenge and should be getting that info out to everyone soon!  If you aren't familiar with the challenge and want to see what we did last year, you can click on the tab at the top of my blog.



PS - Remember to check back here Friday for a book review and giveaway!  And to link up your week's accomplishments for a little whoop whoop!!


  1. Some great "sweat-shop" always!

    The first batik there a pattern for that one?


  2. I love the batik quilt for the man who is battling cancer- great colors and nice design.
    Thanks for sharing these lovely quilts.
    Warmest regards,

  3. Those are some amazing quilts was going to comment on the first one but each one got better going down. Love them.

  4. OK, I'll ask too - is there a pattern for Pam's batik one - the first quilt? That looks like a great one for using up big chunks of your stash!

  5. Another bunch of lovely quilts. Looking forward to Hands2Help.

  6. I love the batik quilt. A special thanks to Joanna for using the kit to create the sweet Ballerina Bear quilt. I'm so happy that it is snuggling some little girl instead of sitting in my closet.
    I'm anxiously awaiting this year's Hands 2 Help.

  7. Wonderful quilts, as always. I am looking forward to H2H 2012.

  8. Very nice quilts that will be loved and treasured. I am looking forward to another H2H challenge.

  9. The quilts are lovely. Such a wonderful, caring church ministry.
