Quilts for Japan

In my last post, I mentioned that my friend JAB and I had made a "sew date" to make some simple quilts for Japan.  We each started with one each, and quickly decided we could do two each.  It took us a little over a week.

My two are on the outside, and JAB's are the two on the inside.

JAB's.  She has an affinity for purple.

Mostly scraps or leftovers.  My two.

It was extremely rewarding, and the time with a good friend was fun.  So much fun, we're going to try to get together about once a month and make a couple of quilts for charity.

But I've just gotta share....  I picked the WINDIEST  day ever to try to get pics... Here are some out-takes:

OK, so this one isn't tooo bad.  I could always claim I planned that so you could see the back.  Right?

So yes - they are very simple quilts.  But hopefully they will bring some comfort to a few people.

I saw your posts on Facebook, but I had no idea this is what you two were doing. I am impressed.

If you start doing a monthly project for charity, please let me know. I can't sew, but I can buy material.

Thank you for the blessing you have given others!

This was so much fun! Such an awesome feeling that we can in some small way help others so far away. It was a fantastic way also to use up the scraps we had laying around. Makes me feel great that nothing went to waste! Thanks for so much fun and the great days we spent doing them. Looking forward to making more! And ROCK! You might not sew but there are always ways to help :)
