What's Cookin' At The Sweatshop?

Hi, all!

It has been another quiet week, although that appears to be changing - I've had two requests for quilts just today.  I predict an upsurge in quilt needs very soon!  But for now, let's see what we did this week...

This pretty quilt was made from a donation sent to us by Laura - top, back and binding, plus two matching pillowcases!  It came in the nick of time, as we had just received a request for a quilt for a 70-year old woman with uterine cancer.  

Laura felt like it was too "sweet" for her, so she sent it to us - and hopefully its new owner feels that it is just perfect!   I love the soft colors and pretty design....

And this past Saturday morning, we met for our regular monthly meeting.  This month some of us decided to work on making "buddy bags" for foster kids who are being moved to another location.  We finished fourteen of them...

Don't they look pretty all hung out there?  
This will be an on-going project, as DCS will let us know 
when their stock gets low.

And we've got another block for 
the Helping Hands Project quilt...

This one was made by Rhonda, a new member of our group!  Remember, there's still time to send in a block for the quilt - you can read more about the project on the page tab 
at the top of this blog.

So that's what's been going on this week - stay tuned as we start making quilts for our middle schoolers to take to Rogersville, TN on their fall mission trip.  We'll be talking more about that in the near future!




  1. A sweet quilt it is!
    What a lovely bunch of bags. I see they are made with regular quilting fabric. I don't know why I thought they had to be canvas...

  2. Found your blog thanks to Connie Combs! Love your quilting... just finished a quilt and hope to get it posted and linked today but we shall see... love the way you quilted this quilt though... and the bag buddies are so cute! What love those kids must feel getting their own bag to keep their stuff in :) Thanks for blogging about all of this! Kathi
