5th Hospice Quilt

This is the 5th Hospice quilt I have quilted in the last week and a half. It is made out of beautiful donated batik fabrics and I believe pieced by Elsie. I still have a couple more charity tops that have backings that could be quilted but think 5 this month is enough.

I cut and put together 3 kits to make charity quilts out of donated charity fabric earlier today also. I am trying to reduce the number of boxes I have of charity fabric so figure I will cut a couple kits at a time and take them to January guild meetings to hand out.

I think that will be it for charity efforts this week. I need to get back to working on some of my projects and getting my bookwork up to date for tax purposes.

Yesterday I did spend time working on a couple of runners. The blocks are very similar to ones on a present pattern I have and enjoyed tailoring them to be made into runners.

I think this will be a good addition to the patterns I make for craft shows.

Rail fence quilts are a favorite of mine.

I'm taking a break from my donation quilting until after Xmas. I have my last UFO for the year on the longarm and I'll be working on that the next few days.

Kathie, why did you need to remind us of TAXES! Yes its soemthing we all have to do I know. I like your new table runner and think you've got a winner. How about a holiday ornament that is as large as the gift box? (I'll email you a file.) Just a thought. You've done a wonderful job for hospice...time for you! Sandi
