WIP Wednesday ... Charity Quilt :)

Although I'm really happy to have this quilt on its way to being finished - well, I still have to baste, quilt, label and bind it but at least the top's now finished (85"x 65"- my biggest yet!), I'm a little worried that this will be too late for the charity I have in mind :(

I blogged about making this quilt here after my dear Texan quilting friend, Tonya, posted me a pile of charm packs. This is what I've turned them into with some cute pink Benartex yardage I bought. It's too big for my tables - basting and quilting's going to be fun:

My idea to pay it forward seemed timely in November - to make this quilt for a Hurricane Sandy victim but now it's January - is anyone still collecting? I've emailed eQuilter to see if they are still co-ordinating something with Timeless Treasures. Fingers crossed I'm not too late.

Well, I'm going to crack on anyway and get it finished by the end of the month. Hope your WIPs/UFOs are coming along nicely :)

Linking up to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday - loving the new logo! 


  1. It's looking good! By the way...I brought my blog back up today and I am going to start plugging away at the blog again. If Mr. Boss Man doesn't like it, it's too bad. Besides, I am contract labor and he really can't hold me to that. I look forward to getting back into the groove.

  2. I love your giving spirit. Keep up the good work!


I love reading all your comments, I know it takes time to write them but they make me smile so thank you for dropping by :)
