scraps galore!

Kids and staff helped make up all these blocks for two
more quilts for Donations for BASICS inc.
Please click the image to see it larger,
there are so many great things to look at!

I can't tell you who had more fun, the grown ups or the kids...
ha! let's just say it was the grown ups who had to be
ushered out at the end of the day...
OK, folks, time to go! No more playing! ;-)

So much fun,
Such good people.
Wish you all could have been there to play.

My new friend from the metro mod quilt guild, Kim,
came along to help!
She was a huge help, as was my daughter, B.
Thanks to both of you!

And Miss Erica was pleased as punch with her 4 blocks she made!

Everyone pitched in, worked together, and we got the job done.

One gal, Suzie, we discovered, was very good at cutting out butterfly shapes,
so she was delegated to cutting butterflies...
hearts, birds, tea cups and cars, oh my!

I need to get the group picture...
what a lovely afternoon!

**If anyone has SIMPLE quilt tutorials they care to share a link to,
I would like to add a link to several for people looking for
quick simple quilts to make for the new quilt blog project.
