I gave my friend 3 bolts of fabric. She gave me back tops. I made the backs and binding. Now I only have a few yards of striped fabric left. What a great feeling to use up for a cause. Deb pieced 4 tops and bound one, Dani quilted one, and we now have 5 finished tops to donate.
3 will be donated to help those in Japan, and 2 will go to Basics in NYC
I know the call was for utility quilts, but I still have to sew the binding by hand. Don't you love stripes on the bias? This was a lot of binding for one week! It's a good thing it's Stanley Cup time, the Canadians and the Canucks are in the hunt for the cup this year. I get a lot of hand work done at this time of year.
This project took time, but many hands got dragged into it involved. It's a great feeling to be 30+ yards lighter in my sewing room. Do you have some fabric that can go to a cause? Time is the biggest gift, so share the project around, it's a great feeling.
