church quilts

Six Graduating seniors will be receiving a quilt next month. Three girls.
Three boys.

They're ALL DONE!!!!
quilted.
bound.

DONE is such a nice word.
I DO have one more to finish for my nephew.
I'll pin that one with friends on Wednesday.
But...... I'm done with the church kids.
That's such a great feeling!


So....today I'm going to play.
I took some orphan blocks and made a few more.



This is the beginning of a quilt for a
very.
special.
teacher.
I hope you can play with some
quilt blocks today!!!

  5. Oh, Beth, I saw your quilts for the graduating seniors and I thought, "We ought to do that too!" Then I flashed on the list of seniors that was in our church bulletin yesterday and realized that even if we started today, we might have a hard time making 50+ quilts by next year's graduation! Shoot! And it's such a great idea.... Your seniors are so lucky!! They are beautiful quilts!

  14. Wow, what an amazing amount of work, and what beautiful quilts! The kids they are for are going to treasure them. I was given a crocheted blanket when I graduated, and I still cherish it. I love seeing my little ones all wrapped up in it now, a decade later. The kids who receive those quilts will feel the same way; it's such a special gift!
