Quilts are finally done

Mel picked up the bookmarks, books, tote bags, eyeglass cases and cards this past weekend to take to the nursing home. Plus I just finished the 7 quilts that will also make the journey to Century Care Center for Christmas Delivery. It took some time, but they are finished and I am tired and ready to hibernate. The reason I want to hibernate... Let me tell you.... I moved to Florida to enjoy the sunshine and warm temps of the area... and for most part we have mild temps here.  There has even been times that the kids came over for Christmas in shorts... BUT not this year...It is cold, really cold... My ponds are freezing over and that is a first. So I think I will turn the electric blanket on and crawl into my comfy warm bed and leave a note on the door that I don't want to be disturbed until the spring thaw... think it will work.....

OK now back to the reason for this lovely post... without further ado the quilts.

 Roses and Ribbons Cancer Quilt.. This quilt had CCS Roses and embroidered lilac ribbons *(symbol of all cancers)  This quilt will go to a cancer patient

                                                                     Floral Beauty Quilt

                                                                           Flower Quilt

                                                          Hat Quilt, this is one of my Favorites

                                                                 Playing Card Quilt

                             Roses and Fans Cancer Quilt  This is the second quilt for a cancer patient

And just so the back of the quilts are not forgotten, here they are

All these quilts are a group effort, the ladies from The World of Charity Stitchers lovingly stitched the designs and then sent them to me, I in turn made them into these lovely quilts.  And yes I do stitch as well, I have one square in the Angel Quilt, two squares in the Rose and Fan Quilt and Two Squares in the Playing Card Quilt.
My Charity quilt total for this year is 14 quilts, plus numerous tote bags, and eyeglass cases.
Most of the quilts I make are delivered to a nursing home or cancer patients, but I have sent one to a three year old heart patient in TX. Plus the totes went to a abused women and children's shelter.
I provide my own fabrics and my supplies of fabrics are what I can find at yard and church sales.
If any of my quilting friends have fabric they would like to donate to my cause you can send me your unwanted fabrics, I could sure use it. Also if you have any Accuquilt Dies that your don't want I would love to give them a good home, as Santa is bringing me a Accuquilt GO for my Christmas Present this year. I can not wait to start using my GO, it should make my charity quilting go much faster.
Merry Christmas to one and all
