I’ve mentioned a couple times that I have two boxes of quilty bits from the guild charity table. People donate all kinds of fabrics, orphan blocks and kitted quilts for someone else to complete. The quilts go to the local battered women’s shelter. Every woman and child that stays there receives a quilt that they take when they leave. I love the idea of wrapping someone that has suffered abuse in the comfort of a quilt. It saddens me that this one shelter goes through about 300 quilts a year.
I don’t remember sharing many pictures of the various blocks that insisted they come home with me, so I decided to share what I have to pick from when the Safehouse UFO numbers come up.
The cat blocks came with a pattern but no fabric. The enabler working the charity table told me I HAD to take them because she knew I’d love them. I do love them, and she’s very good at finding homes for those projects.
It would feel good to get a few of these finished and in the hands of people that need them. The real trick is to not pick up any more of these goodies until I finish the ones I have.
