There are many quilt drives going on now for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. When I learned that Monica was making this mission trip, I offered to send a couple of quilts and stuff, and to ask members of the Kindred Kwilters if they would like to send something, too. And they did!
First up............this quilt is a joint effort of my friend, Cathy and me.
We made it several years ago to donate to the local women's shelter. I did the applique center and Cathy did the big "quilt as you go" borders, then surged the edge of the quilt. I thought the surged edge made it look unfinished and always intended to add a true binding. I finally did it! Cathy passed away in 2009. She'd be pleased this quilt is headed east as she grew up in White Plains, New York. :-)
Next up is a Christmas patchwork quilt that someone made when we did quilts for Iowa flood victims in 2008. It was summer so a Christmas quilt got set aside until now. I added a red velour binding and I hope some child loves the quilt. Now as you know, it's a little windy up here on the ridge..............
And here's Ruth with a quilt she made for Hurricane Katrina but did not have a way to get it to anyone and so she said........"I guess it was meant for someone affected by Hurricane Sandy"! Thanks, Ruth!
So, in addition to gathering stuff for Hurricane Sandy victims, I've also been working on a Silent Auction at church and then playing with fabrics........lots of fabrics from Jacquelynne at The*Noble*Wife. And I decided that I would share a couple bundle with my quilting friends at Kindred Kwilters. So, I put together two bundles........."O Holy Night" on the left and "Fruitful Hands" on the right.............

Jacquelynne's fabrics with these lovely poinsettias in the design. And all you have to do is leave your name. Every day this week, I'll be giving away fabric. Thank you so much, Jacquelynne for sharing your gorgeous collection!
