Have you kept track of how many charity quilts you have given away? Or how many you have made in any one year?

I finished up DGD baby quilt this weekend.  DD had been giving me a hard time cause DGD will be nine months the end of the week and all the others have had theirs by six month.  DD was very happy when she saw the quilt.  The top had actually one of the first ones I had made.  I was going to give it away when I made it by DD said I couldn't do that.  It was made with scraps from DMIL scrap box which was given to me when she passed away.

If you don't  think your skills are improving, go back and work with one of the first tops you made.

I’ve begun working on a shop sample.  It has a panel in the center and some strip block around it that look like a zig zag.  I also did some binding last night.  I really need to get one side done today so I can hang it up for Christmas!

I am starting to get things organized for the retreat. I am getting together with Misha Friday and we are gonna sew our lotto blocks and cut stris for the retreat mystery quilt.

Well, I bet that was fun pulling out an old top that had been waiting for just the right recipient.  And think of the memories in it.  No doubt she was so pleased.  I bet you were amazed at how much you have improved over the years.  How long ago did you make it? 

I have no idea how many charity quilts I've made, but I have done pretty good at taking photos and keeping them in a file on my computer.  I make a file for "quilts made in ---- "whatever the  current year is.  I looked back and my first file was "quilts made before 2005"  There are quite a few in each file!  One of these days I should get an external hard drive to move them to.  I almost lost them when the computer crashed, but we have carbonite which saved them all.  Phew!

I will wager a guess that you have made dozens and dozens and dozens ..... probably two or three hundred .... charity quilts by now.

Go ahead, try to prove me wrong, dear friend.

Ah, you know me well my friend!  Some cold, snowy, Illinois day I may go through my photo files and see.  And just how many have you made and donated?  Hmmm?

Those are pretty blocks.  My L/E is coming along, so far I have 5 border units done.
