Well, hello world. I am reminded of the old adage that goes "if a tree falls in the forest...." - well, you know it.
So, I have this blog, and I really don't know for sure how to get anyone to view it. I am working on adding it to my posts on the Yahoo quilting groups I post too - maybe that will bring someone to my little corner of the virtual world. If you visit, please Comment so I can have a party because company arrived!
So - I will chat today about charity quilts. I have made well over 400 quilts or knitted blankets for Project Linus , most of them given to the Greensboro, NC chapter, where I used to live. More recently, I've been making quilts for the Sunshine Chapter of Yahoo, quilts that go around the world to children.
I think I enjoy these small masterpieces because I feel so free when I sew them - bright, sunny colors - great! Seams don't match perfectly - no problem! The only requirement, I think, is the love sewn into the quilt.
So - the photo above is a couch filled with charity quilts from a couple of years ago - I wonder where they are now??? Hopefully some small child has felt special and loved, well snuggled under my small gifts...
I am proud of us, generous quilters that we are.... this is good work we do.
