A few days ago, Another great GIFT came my way. This Young Man, Philip,
is making a quilt for his community service hours project for the national honor society and
will donate it to BASICS this spring. I say he has the making of a very talented quilter!
Don't you agree?
I love his very scrappy layout... And I can't wait to see how the rest of it goes...
Keep up the good work Philip! Your doing great!
Speaking of generous gifts...
My Friend Shelly and her wonderful family donated this quilt (below)top
to me to finish and donate as I saw fit.
Thank you JACKIE for quilting it for me....
It now lives with our wonderful 80 year old part time doorman, Ritchie.
He is the kindest, generous, helpful man I know. And I so appreciate him
and what he does for everyone in our building.
I got home from long island today and found a box from Heather,
and inside the box were THREE more quilts for the BASICS project...
HEATHER, you are Fabulous, and I thank you deeply for the quilts...
What a great gift to find on my doorstep...
One of the things I worked on this week, at my house, was sifting through
the remnants of fabrics donated (by many of you) for the BASICS quilt gather.
I have more blocks of fabric that can be made into quilts,
and I ALSO have a HUGE box of fabric Heather gave me this past
summer to use for more Charity quilts.
I am organizing the leftovers with a goal of making 1-2 Charity quilts a month.
You guys were all so awesome last year by being so Generous...
I can't even tell you how many quilts I made this year...
The Charity quilts alone are at about 60, since APRIL. phew!
I have 4 more tops put together that need to be quilted.
If anyone else is willing to quilt them,
I'd be thrilled to have more help to keep it going...
DID SANTA BRING A NEW SEWING MACHINE?
Just a friendly Reminder, We are aprox,
25 Quilts away from 200 Quilts.
If you are donating a quilt to BASICS
and want to be in the Raffle for a
chance to win the Janome Sewing machine,
I hope to have the raffle by the end of JAN.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE:
You can CONTINUE to send quilts to BASICS...http://bumblebeansbasics.com/
they will continue to collect quilts for their families,
even if you can't get one in for a raffle chance...
