Small donation quilts

Eight small quilts are ready to go to the Foothills Quilter's Guild meeting tomorrow. They range in size from 40x45 to 44x70. These will either go to the Elkin Rescue Squad or the Elkin Police Dept. to give to distressed kids. I have been making these quilts out of remnants and sale fabrics since 1990. That's 18 years! Wow! But I still love to make them and it makes me feel good to know that they will go to kids that need a little comfort. (Once in awhile I even get a quilt done for me.) I quilt them on my Gammill quilting machine (now 14 years old), and just hem the edges instead of using binding.

What a wonderful committment! You are making a lot of kids happy! And what great use you've gotten from your Gamill! I'd say you got your money worth!
