Nice pile o' quilts

Four lovely charity quilts....
Finally quilted!!!!

This was the stack BEFORE!
So nice when a job is DONE!
Technically...I have ONE more to finish and quilt.
Don't hold your breath.
I'm calling it done for now.

Here's the first orphan block quilt.
It's laying on my backyard...
where almost EVERY quilt picture takes place!!!

When I ask helpers to hold the quilts...
there's always a RUSH to get the picture taken...
so the holder can get on to other things!!!

The grass doesn't complain or rush me at all!!!

Love the pretty floral on the back of this one.
It was a nice big piece handed down to me
from a 90+ year old friend.

Here's the third quilt using all YOUR orphans!

This one was quilted by a quilting friend.
Nice to have many hands when there's a BIG job!!!

We've even added a little LOVE to this one!!!!
I'm sending these off
to Equilter!!!
Looks like they're still collecting quilts
for Hurricane Sandy victims!!!
I was a bit worried that by the time
I finished these quilts....
the call for quilts would have PASSED!!!
So glad I made it!!!
and look at this!!.....
These arrived this week from Norece!
More orphans needing a home
in a
Thanks to EVERYONE who sent orphans my way.
Orphans make such HAPPY quilts!!!!
