Still Making Tops

Health issues (broken hip, arthritis in hands, kidney stone, eye surgery) have kept me somewhat sidelined for the first half of the year, but I've still tried to make tops for my charities when I can. They have been a healing salvation to get me through times when one needs something to forget about pain and the convalescing cycle. And it's great to be a part of a group (St. Anne's Sewdality) when all I have to do is make the quilt tops and the rest is done by others.  Sometimes it take a group to make a quilt. Here's a few I've made so far:

These last two were made using a great tutorial by Jenny Doan.  You can read about it here. Don't have time to make a charity quilt. I invite you to form a group and see how easy it will be.
