It's been a couple of weeks since I had time to post a Sweatshop update - babies are very distracting!! But I've got a few pretties to share with you this week...
This first quilt was made using a center donated by Kate bordered with some vintage Irish linen from my grandmother's stash. I love string blocks, and maybe someday I'll actually make some of my own - but I sure appreciate the ones that are donated to us!! This one went to a lady in New Orleans who is dealing with multiple cancers. She loves blue and I think this just fits the bill!!
This beautiful top was given to us by Annie, who saw it for sale on someone's blog and had it sent to us for the ministry. Isn't it beautiful - very manly, all homespuns. It now belongs to a man with lymphoma in New Orleans.
The center of this adorable I-Spy quilt was pieced by Margaret, and I added borders to make it large enough for its recipient, a six-year old boy who is having heart valve replacement surgery this week.
Aren't these I-Spy blocks great? I believe they came from Diane, and there was even one with french fries and another with pickles! So cute!!
This last quilt is my favorite for the week (probably because I got to make it from start to finish!) It's a postage stamp quilt made with all batiks. We received a donation of a wide variety of batik fabrics, so I think I used twenty-one different pieces. This was a joy to make, and now I want to make lots more!!!
It was given to a woman in our church who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. This was totally unexpected for her, as there is no family history, and it was important to me to get a quilt to her quickly so she would have that constant reminder that many people are praying for her. I hope it makes her smile every time she sees it!
So those are the quilts we've given out this week. I'm currently got seven more quilts ready to go on the frame - there should be a big update next week!! Thanks again for all your support - we couldn't do it without you!!
