Top done! In the nick of time too.....My son Jeff and I are running out for dinner and a movie...mother and son night. I'll find backing and see about getting this quilted quick tomorrow.

One I shop that I made demo quilts for, Common Threads in Waxahachie Texas, sent an email saying they would be a drop off place for quilts to go to Houston. I emailed Denice back since she still had some demo quilts I had done for the shop. She is going to send one of them now, and one of them later when she finishes the class that it is a demo for. That feels good. Something for now, something for later. Both of them going to Houston, so I can deliver the ones I've been working on here this week locally. Covering two bases :c) Posted by Picasa

Bonnie - that bargello like scrap quilt is so awesome. Isn't it wonderful how it makes ugly fabrics work! I don't always log on the computer on the weekends, but it was a long day and I needed a lift me up! And your quilt did it!

My original plan today was to take kids fabric and cut it up for your matchsticks quilt, but something else got in the way. So at least seeing you got something accomplished makes me feel good!

You're an inspiration! I don't see any ugly fabrics in that quilt :) Enjoy your night at the movies- you've earned it.

Looks wonderful ! And a good plan for "now and later". Just heard on MN news at 6, the FEMA has contacted MN to take 5,000. They will be coming into Camp Ripley next week. That's near Grand Forks, I think.
Am considering checking to see if mine can go there. Like you said, Houston will be getting alot of stuff.
ALso that MN is already putting out the call for winter clothes for kids. Sounds like the estimated stay in MN will be 2-6 months, with MN checking to see what permanent housing might be available.

Wow! You are fast at piecing quilts! That's a great design for those scraps, too! Someone is going to be so blessed to get this quilt.

Bonnie, you are incredible, that quilt is incredible, truly. That "demo" quilt you so casually mention is probably a masterpiece -you are very generous to donate it, as well as all the work you are doing now. Hope you enjoyed the movie.
