Charity quilting today

I put the third small quilt on the frame from the same lady today so I can deliver all of them to her when I see her at the guild meeting next week.

This one is a charity quilt that she made out of a kit I had put together out of donated fabrics. She supplied the batting and the backing and I quilted it with a variegated teal thread using my version of Dwirling from the Pajama Quilters DVD.

That is usually fun and mindless but for some reason I was having issues of thread breaking today. Guess tomorrow I will change the needle etc. before I start on the next quilt.

I wasn't sure how it would go over when I made up a bunch of kits from some of the fabrics that had been donated. Over the last few months I have made up 19 kits, 16 of them were taken by various people and I have 8 of them turned back in. Several with backings provided also. I think that is doing pretty good.

I'd say that was doing good too. 19 made, 16 out and 50% turned back in is great. I like the Dwirling pattern.
