This is an excellent idea for charity. Making sleeping bags from whatever for those less fortunate.

I have put some pictures of quilts that I have been working on since January of this year. I don't have pictures of everything as I have given some away already. I just finished my 5th baby quilt and finished seven regular sized quilts.

I must confess though that some of the projects were started long ago and I never got around to putting the blocks together because life got in the way (I went back to school while my middle two were in college and finished my BA and then got my MA). Needless to say this past Easter holiday when my son was visiting (he lives in PA now) I gave him the quilt he had picked out fabric for thirteen years ago (I had machine embroidered his name and year and if I wouldn't have I never would have been able to put a date on it). The signature block quilts were from the Genie Online quilting group from 1993/1994.

If everyone thinks the price of gas gives them sticker shock - I think the price of fabric makes my eyes pop. I have told myself no new fabric until I use whats in the stash (well unless I don't have a specific color that the expectant mother wants in her nursery).

Thanks for letting me indulge with sharing my photos.
