This post from July 2011 is all about pillowcase dresses for Haiti. I made a personal goal to make 50 dresses. There was not enough pillowcases donated, so I used fabrics from stash. Well, you have to use it somewhere... It was a daunting job because of all that bias I had to make!
The post is HERE along with a
picture of more dresses
I am also part of an annual school book bag project. We make 450 bags every year for all 2nd graders in the county. A quilter friend and I do most of the cutting and prep work of the straps ahead of time. Then we have a mission week at church with more helpers to sew them together.
Many hands make light work.
HERE is the mission project. You'll even find a pic of DH at the ironing board - he was showing off amongst all the ladies. I've not caught him with an iron since. LOL
Here I'll just share a few photos of quilts I've donated. Most of them go to the children who are admitted to the local hospital. It is our Quilt Guild mission. A few go for QOV.
I am blessed to have the opportunity to give my creations away to family, friends and charitable causes. It warms my heart. I am linking up with Val's Quilting Studio where you can visit more quilters charing their cats and charity projects.
Thanks for stopping by.
