Charities, and the quilts we make to help them

Quilters, what makes them so generous?
Is it the continual efforts to decrease the stash, if only to make room for new fabric 'loves' or is it the excuse chance to try out a new pattern, perhaps even to refine an old, much loved pattern or is it just their big hearts?
Many of our members make quilts in support of their own fav charity groups as well as the charities that the group supports.
Val purchased the fabric and pattern for this lovely while in Hawaii, reckons it's the hardest quilt she has made in awhile as the turtles and the first border are a single piece of fabric.
Another charity quilt from 'the house of Val'
and yet another.
Lorraine created this 'charity cutie'
Sandy answered the call for hospital baby quilts with this lovely.
While Marie created this little sweetie in answer to the call for kiddies quilts for the hospital.
Marie also had a lovely quilt to support Fae with her charity of choice.

Marie also had this almost completed beauty to share with us, a 50th Birthday gift.

Marion has been bitten by the Bargello bug and bought these along to finish the bindings and share with us, the lovely in mauves and purples for her Darlings cousin's 80th Birthday.
and the stunning Black and White with a different layout for her Daughter in Law.

Pat had this stunner to share, made for her Grandson's 8th Birthday just because he loves all the planets.
Pat even popped the moon phases across the top and bottom of his quilt so that whatever way its on his bed, its the right way up!

Marcia had an ipad pic to share, and ask for an opinion of layout options, the first ever quilt she is making for Oliver....for his 31st Birthday...yep hang in there Oliver, its on its way.

Cheryl flipped her ipad open to share this stunner with us, her quilt posted awhile back on Pinterest has thousands of pins....yep, you read it right...don't you just love Pinterest!?
