I found about a wonderful church making quilts for children in Africa who have lost their families. It is very compelling and I signed up to make one. Tabitha is her name. Joel is still waiting for someone to make a quilt for him. Would that be YOU???????
I found a wonderful panel full of pictures of native people and other fun stuff from Africa. I just framed them with bright fabric and put black in between the rows. I did this without a pattern which is VERY unusual for me. It was a perfect way to use my bright fabric.
The center is done and just needs borders. I put it away for a bit and will finish is in a week or so. I was tired of it and know enough to stop when I feel that way. I will get excited to finish it in a couple of weeks.
The girl's favorite color is gold and I found some perfect fabric for the backing with gold and brown.
I am grateful I taught myself how to quilt to help with all these wonderful causes.
I can watch TV and hear over and over how Tiger Woods is in a mess, people are fighting all the time over politics and who is RIGHT--or I can go make a quilt. Easy choice for me. How about your time?
