Design wall Monday 9-13-2010

I have nothing on my design wall right now. I do have a huge amount of UFO's that are taking over my sewing room. I have 5 flimsys that are ready to be basted and quilted and my Civil War Love Letters hasn't been touched since I came back from retreat at the end of August. I am still putting rows together...

But I did put the binding on a quilt yesterday so I do have a finish...

This quilt will be donated for a very special purpose. My oldest daughter is the director of a Hospice. Part of their program is granting small wishes for the patients. Right now their funds are depleted so what does a quilter do? She makes a quilt and donates it...


pattern is Yellow Brick Road by Terri Atkinson

And while we are at it...let's donate another one!!


you can find the inspiration for this quilt HERE

And hubby said "don't leave me out"..so he donated one of his handmade oak picture frames...



I hope they raise a ton of money..

Go see what everyone else has on their design wall over at Judy's....

You and hubby are so kind to make and donate those items. Hospice programs are so wonderful and their work is a blessing to those who need it. I hope they raise a lot of money, too.

I love your Yellow Brick Road quilt. That is one of my favorite "go to" patterns. I hope it raises lots of money for such a great cause.

Great job on the quilt Nancy and the frame is very nice, too.

Is there any way we can take chances for this great cause?
