Small Charity Quilts

These are some of the "reclaimed" orphan blocks and stuff my friends and I are using for the little charity quilts. All of these will go to Linus in Kansas City.

My daughter stopped at a garage sale a couple of days ago, and called to asked if I wanted FREE quilting stuff. What's not good about that? Besides 3 rotary cutters, some template plastic, a self healing mat and some nice little boxes of pins, there were some hunks of older type calicos. They were a nice complement to use with the older orphan blocks from way back when.

We all are feeling pretty good that the orphans and older fabrics will be finding a good home after all these years of languishing in our stash boxes.

Now, I am needing to get ready to pack up for our annual trip to Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN for Hubby's kidney/liver transplant reviews. I think I have a plan - it's just a matter of finding what I want to take! LOL!

Happy and Safe Fourth of July to all!

Shirlee's Whirling Star - 21" X 33"

Sharon's Baby Animals - 31" square

Shirlee's Crosses and Stars - 44" X 51" (not quilted yet)

Shirlee's Mariner's Compass - 35.5" X 37" (notice two blocks cut in half to frame the center)

Shirlee's Blue Sails - 19" square

Very nice charity quilts Sharon..pass along my praise to Shirlee too!

Good luck to you and hubby for his screening stuff. Pick a good project as I'm sure there will be waiting to be done.

Always nice to be given those little quilting extras. Quilts in pics so precious. I have a friend who is coming up on her 12th year of liver transplant. She continues to do great. Hope your hubby's check up is great too.

I love the idea of cutting blocks in half to make the corners. I have some I might use that way on the American Hero quilts. Thanks! Your rescued blocks are wonderful!

Good luck at Mayo. I'll be thinking of you and your DH.
