Quilts for the homeless

There is a big need for quilts for the homeless; I have 'tons' of fabric that really doesn't lend itself to our other quilts.
Does anyone want to join me at my house to assemble the fabric into quilts?  Or I can provide 'kits' for you to assemble one at home.
I'm just sewing together pieces of fabric and finishing them by sewing on the backing and turning it inside out through an opening (with the batting encased.)  No binding necessary.

Send me a message if you can help!

November Block Lotto

Here it is, my final installment for block lotto. Cozy!

The block pattern is Mountain Majesty and the tutorial I followed is found HERE.

Please feel free to use any of the colors for either the peaks or valleys! The block finishes at 11.5"x14.5".

How to play: Make up the block for the month following the pattern and color scheme. Make as many as you want as you will get an entry for every block you make! Bring all your finished blocks to the meeting on November 13th and we will draw a winner. If there are enough blocks to be divided, multiple winners will be drawn. The winner then gets all of those blocks to make a quilt (or similar project)! The winner can participate in following lottos but can't win again until a completed project is presented. 

Have fun!

Pin Cushion Swap

We will be having a pin cushion swap! If you would like to participate, all you have to do is make a pin cushion. Easy as that. Sew one up and bring it to the November meeting and we will swap them out. Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
