What do you do with all of the quilts you make?   Quilting Swaps - Unsewn

That is such a simple technique, I don't know why more people don't do it.  It makes pillows look SOOOO much better.

That is sad, Lynne.  Unless I have someone in mind I donate mine.  Occasionally one will appeal to me, and I'll keep it at least for a while.

I make quilts for Quilts of Valor, Project Linus and Snowball Express.  But I sew almost every day and with the exception of the QOV, most go out the door pretty fast.  I belong to a quilting group that does the Project Linus, Snowball Express and we also provide quilts for cop cars (to comfort children) and several other organizations in our area.   I just love the entire process. 

Right now I'm working my way through a ton of UFO's that need to be done and gone.

I have all the quilts I need for my home.  My kids have a "Cease & Desist" order on me for quilts, claiming they have more than enough.  BUT I will be making more mature quilts for the grandkids soon.

Snowball Express is a huge all expenses paid Christmas Party that the Gary Sinise Foundation does for children who have lost a parent in a war zone.  I think it's American Airlines that flies the remaining parent and all the children to a location, (usually Disney World) and the foundation pays all the expenses.   Gary Sinise is a one man honor the Military kind of fellow.   The sewing group "Ojai Church of Christ Comfort Quilters" have funds constantly being donated so we have the $$ to ship to the foundation.

Quilts must be 45" x 60" minimum.  They prefer Patriotic colors.  Also they don't want fabric that represents a specific branch, USMC, Army etc.

How is life going in Tennessee?  I've been looking at homes in the southern part of the state, down by Chattanooga.  I don't want to be to far north as I'm not big on snow & massive amounts of cold.  Any good quilt shops near you?  Quilt Guilds?
