Another lady in my guild agreed to take two of the hospice tops to quilt and last night at a board meeting another lady popped up and offered to quilt one. I was getting overloaded and overwelmed with the number of tops I had. I quilt 2 or 3 a month and probably had at least 6 months worth if I didn't get any more tops in. I would like to see a lot of these quilts finished and donated and NOT sitting in my basement so I was very happy about it. I also want to keep encouraging people in the guild to make quilts as there are so many organizations that can use them.
I also gathered up 10 1/2 squares and made two backing kits and took those to the meeting and both of them were taken to be pieced. I will try and make up a couple more and take them to our meeting next monday as probably half of the quilt tops I have do not have backings. I don't mind making up one once in a while but it takes time and I would rather use my charity time getting them quilted.
Having a little discomfort in my knee (arthritis) today so I don't know how much quilting I will do. I have loaded the backing (large) for the next customer quilt this morning and put a border on the last of my 8 Christmas Tree runners. I will at least get the quilt fully loaded and then see how the knee is doing before I start to quilt.
