Charity Quilts and Ironing Board
As per Libby's request, I am showing you what my ironing board looks like right now. Pretty good for a change. She is having a fun little contest/giveaway, check it out. All you have to do it show us your ironing board. Hers is quite interesting to say the least. lol
Here is what I have been up to when I have had a chance to get in my sewing room this past week. I don't like to let my scraps get out of control, so when my small bin gets full I make some quick string quilts for charity. I was showing these to my hubby and was telling him that by making several of these a year it helped to justify all of the ones I make for ourselves. Besides it lets me do what I love and I am helping to share all that I have been so generously blessed with.
The pink one has some quilt squares with some trapunto type embroidery designs that I designed and digitized with my embroidery software. I sell these in my ebay store. I think that they add some fun dimension to a quilt. Here is a close-up of one of them.
In the pic of my ironing board there is some more string blocks for another lap sized quilt. On the bookcase in that same picture there is 2 more flimsies ready for quilting. These were all made from scraps and will be for charity.
My granddaughter thinks that every girl quilt I make should be for her! :o)
I would like to know what kind of batting you all use? Do you use a different batt in your charity quilts than you use in those for gifts or yourself?
Have a Great Quilty Day!!!!!
