These three made the cut and came home from B&N. You can probably guess by now that the Quilt it for Kids is for Mom!
What could be more perfect than an iced latte and a stack of books and
magazines to browse through?
I wonder how many will go home with me?
Not all of these were donated today but I went into Mom’s computer for photos of some of her recent quilts. She really makes cute quilts and as I told BJ, I claim credit for getting Mom interested and teaching her to quilt!
You’ll notice that she likes applique a lot more than I do and on these small quilts she pieces and quilts them herself on her Bernina. Her larger tops are sent to me for quilting although Deb does an occasional one for her too.
Mom and I are heading out to IHOP for breakfast and then over to Catholic Charities to take some quilts. I brought a couple with me to donate but Mom’s been really busy!
Another tip I learned a couple years after I’d gotten my longarm was that I didn’t need to press my backs before loading them on the longarm. A little spritz of water after the back is loaded gets even the most stubborn wrinkles out.

They surprised me by choosing the Hearts and Strings top inspired by this quilt by Sandy Bonsib so it’s on the design wall for me to measure and pick out a backing. Although I haven’t made any promises, the goal is to quilt it when I get back from this next trip and take it when we see them the last week of July.
