So today I'll put on two bindings, finish the borders and maybe see if I can pin the baskets, maybe.
The last two months or so, our small group has been working on this leaf quilt. Most of you who know me, know that I'm color challenged. So I know you will understand how helpful I was in the making of this quilt. Some of these fabrics are really ugly, and I'm not the only one to think so! It was a mutual consensus. These were ugly blocks!
We ended up making two of these for community service. After they are quilted up these quilts will be given to someone in need.
I love that, I love to be able to give back and to help someone stay warm. Our guild is always receiving letters from groups who have received our quilts. Everyone of those letters are tear jerkers. The recipients are always amazed and awed that people would give away a handmade gift and they all love the quilts. I remember hearing somewhere that the recipient loved her quilt so much that she wrapped herself in the quilt so tight, she heard some threads pop. Now that made me cringe but it also made me smile, that's love!
Take care, Brandie
