Quilting For Good Linky Party #9

Hi, all!

It's that time again - a chance for you to show and tell about your charity quilting efforts!  Tell us about your favorite place to send quilts, or a story about a particular quilt.  It's all good!

Here's a quilt I worked on last week that was truly a group effort.

The blocks for this quilt were donated to our quilt ministry.  If I remember correctly, they came from Kate, who lives in England and sends us all kinds of goodies when her mom comes back to the US after visiting her.  I think the center blocks are Farmer's Wife blocks - at the very least, they are really intricate paper piecing!  Just gorgeous!  And the two outside rows of blocks came either from Kate or from Sharon - I hate that I can't remember for sure but either way they are very much appreciated - and they were the perfect way to finish off this quilt!   Emilie took these blocks and some muslin squares and pieced the top, Sabrina made the back, and  I quilted and bound it.   This quilt then went to a young woman who has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in her leg. She is a single mom with a young child, and has no family in the area.  We hope that this quilt will not only bring her comfort, but remind her that there are people all around her who are praying for her and would be willing to help her in times of need.


So that's just a little bit of what I've been working on this week!  

And now it's your turn!

Show us what you've been working on this week -

It's all Quilting For Good!




  1. What a pretty combinations and mix of blocks - yes, those outside blocks are from me, but really love how you 'married' them together in this group quilt. Just lovely.

  2. Lovely, great way to show off orphan blocks.

  3. And this week I forgot the Linky party!
