Charity Quilt Tops are ready for quilting

I have just finished assembling 15 quilt tops for my charity group, these will now be heading to the quilting frame this week. The squares were stitched by members of the World of Charity Stitching group, we even had one member who sent in three UFO embroidered redwork and bluework quilt tops that she was making for her grand daughter. Her grand daughter decided she had outgrown the designs and the top was sent to me to rework for Ronald McDonald House. I an so glad that quilter donated the UFO tops instead of throwing it in the trash as she had planned on doing.
I also have 7 other quilts in the works but at this time I can not post because these are Christmas Gifts and I wouldn't want the surprise to be given away... I will post those after the holidays...

Red work tops were created as a quilt for a members grand daughter, GD decided she wanted something different and our member sent the quilt to me in case I could somehow use it for our charity group instead of tossing out in the trash.  Quilt was reworked into 4 smaller quilts which will be delivered to Ronald McDonald house this holiday season.

All the above quilt tops were stitched, sewed, embroidered and quilted by
Members of the World of Charity Stitching Group.
I am proud to be a member working on these beautiful quilts.
Thanks to everyone who donated their time, UFOs, Fabrics, threads and love to our projects.
