It is child protecting service that's when they go and take the kids away from the family each child gets a blanket and they also get a big bag they take the bags out together the belongings of the child and put it in because otherwise they would have to use garbage bags so they're asking for big tote bags to put the children's stuff in and they get to keep that bag and the quilt so call your child protective service organization wherever you live and they can instruct you from there where to bring the quilts in
I wonder, just how many of them will be done before retreat?? LOL
Thank you for the new resources. I will see what they need in my area.
She is a sewing whirlwind so who knows.
If I'm busy pulling fabrics, cutting & planning, I won't be sewing. This one took all yesterday evening to cut & plan. I still need to number the row/columns, then it is ready to pack away. I'm running out of some of the colors that were precut, so it takes longer to pull out the yardage & cut, then put away. And we have family coming tonight, so I need to get this off the design wall as it will get brushed past & fall off the wall.
ooh...like that one...looks like there will be a chain going around the blocks.
I am going to make an irish chain iSpy for my grandson one of these days...
Viola, do you have a pattern or dimensions for the Child Protective Services bags? Are they drawstring type tote bags or do they have handles?
I'm trying to get a group of ladies started on these.
Thanks again for your help.
chop chop chop.
10 kits ready to go. The top left bag (pattern is called "radiant") is actually two quilts because you cut the blocks in half - and I didn't want duplicates in the quilt, so two quilts. I plan to play around with the layout once the blocks are done, kind of like log cabin blocks - lots of variations possible.
I started on the top right one last night, the nested stars - figured that one would be more difficult to do at a retreat because you have to lay it out on a design wall as you sew.
We had company this weekend (guest room is sewing room) so I had anticipated I'd be working on hand piecing as I wouldn't have access to my room. But we visited a new to us quilt shop in the area and my cousin bought a batik red & black Moda layer cake that was marked down to $17 (whee!). And she wanted to sew. While she made large rail fence blocks I cut out kits. And talked and talked. So glad my cousin married a quilter - and a lovely intelligent funny woman that likes to visit. Fun weekend
