National day of service

I’d seen a post on Cheri’s blog about Obama calling for a National Day of Service today in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Even though most of my days are passed in service to others, I wanted to make sure I worked on donation projects today.

Tonight, I’m working on quilting this cute top that was pieced by my Mom. She’d given it to me to quilt and donate and I’m in the mood to work on another kid’s quilt after finishing up the binding on the Happy Block quilt earlier today. I’m doing some freehand swirls and when I’m finished – it will be #6 of the 10 tops I’m quilting in January. (It will be finished tonight!)

  2. Great, Mary, thanks for participating! I know what you mean about spending so much time on donation quilts, but it is fun to work on a day when you know otthers are, too. I love the stripes in that quilt — really sets everything off.
