I did spend a little time in the sewing room this week, working on some charity quilts. Not whole quilts, just one block actually...
|Each member of my quilt guild, the M & M's, was asked to make one monkey block this month...here's my paisley primate, almost done...|
|...we are using this pattern to make some quilts for children who are hospitalized...|
|...the pattern is in the current Love of Quilting magazine.|
We also volunteered to make some memory folders for parent's who have had a child die...
|Here are the supplies each of us received, some fabric, recycled x-ray plates cut to size and the instructions.|
|A finished folder...this was a heart wrenching project to work on.|
I am discovering so many new projects that quilter's work on to help others, from place mats for Meals on Wheels, quilts for seniors in care, memory quilts/tactile quilts for Alzheimer's patients, to quilts for victims of natural disasters...there are so many ways we can, and do, help others.
