What A Find

In getting ready for a Happy Chemo Sew In recently I found a bin of tops.  After the initial guilt of letting these tops get lost with the bins of fabric, I got busy.  I basted a few and started quilting.
 Others I put together with batting and backs and will take to my guild meeting in a week and ask (beg) for help getting them done.
A few I loaded up yesterday when I went to visit my grandma.  Because, now here is a great find, at a event on National Quilt Day I ran into a friend I had lost track of.  We got talking and she asked if I was still doing Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo.  She wanted to help quilt them. YEAH!  I told her of my recent discovery and what a blessing her help would be.  Fortunately she lives by my grandma so I can drop off and pick up quilts when I visit grandma. So thankful for tender mercies that let me find the tops and then a way to get them finished into quilty hugs.

  3. Pays to check the bottom of the bin once in awhile.

  4. Nice to find surprises! Look at it this way -- now you don't have to worry about piecing but can move straight to the quilting stage.

  5. Oh, Em, I'm so proud of you and what you are doing with your chum! And that log cabin with the vintage reds really sang out to me because I think that I still own some of those same fabrics! I feel so sympatico that you bought them, too!

  6. That's like finding a $20 bill in your coat pocket the first time you wear it in the winter! Awesome!!!

  9. Isn't it fun to find something unfinished and get it done? I recently put together some 4-patch "western" blocks into a donation quilt and it didn't take very long at all. Also, am getting ready to baste another donation quilt. I'm hoping to get more UFO's finished this year as well.
