Another week, another big pile of quilts! It's been busy, but hopefully this catches us up for a bit, so I can work on quilting the summer camp quilts that will be going to New Orleans! Let's see what we did this week....
|...and the back!|
This very bright and patriotic quilt, pieced by Emilie, will be going to a young Marine who is suffering from PTSD.
This pretty postage stamp quilt, also pieced by Emilie, will be going to a young woman dealing with cancer and Crohn's disease. Notice the little flowers in the detail picture? They cover up a "booboo" in the border. Don't you just love applique?
This soft print quilt (made by me! surprise surprise!) will be going to a young woman who is going through a difficult time right now. We seem to be branching out into encouragement quilts a bit - it's a nice addition to the types of quilts we make!
This sunny, cheerful quilt will be brightening the day of another woman dealing with cancer.
And this bright and colorful quilt is going to a lady batting cancer. Katy, one of our ministry members, met her husband in an airport while waiting for a plane, and felt led to send her a quilt. Isn't it neat when an opportunity to help someone comes along?
This last quilt, made by Cindy, has a very special story. Originally intended for a friend who was in the last stages of cancer, it instead was given to the friend's daughter. You can read the whole story here on the Quilts Are For Giving blog - it's definitely worth hopping over and checking out.
So that's what we've been working on this week. Next week, we've got to buckle down and get those summer camp quilts finished for the New Orleans trip - that should keep us busy! Lots of quilting and binding to come..... I can't wait to see all the quilts for New Orleans in one place - it's going to be an impressive pile of love and comfort!!
Thanks to all the people who participated in making and delivering the quilts above - from the donors to the people who put them together to those who take them to the recipients, each of you are important to the final outcome and very much appreciated!!
