Children's Shelter Quilts

Shortly before Christmas my friend and co-worker Judy B. and I delivered 10 quilts and 21 fleece blankets to a local children's shelter. The quilts were mostly made with quilt tops from my stash; one quilt top, fabric and charms, were donated by fellow on-line quilters years ago.

I couldn't afford to pay for the finishing supplies for so many quilts, so I posted a request for help on my office bulletin board. I received gift certificates and discount coupons for local fabric stores, as well as fabric and sheets. Many people donated cash, and after I purchased the quilting supplies, the leftover money was used to buy the fleece blankets. One friend contributed by tying knots in a quilt.
