They sent these photos a while ago, and I saved them for just the right day --- TODAY!
Linda Hayes sent in the photos and they are all so cute. I’ll let her be the voice while I just post the pictures!
I just have to share this with you. A couple of weeks ago about a dozen of us met at our local quilt shop, Sunday Best Quiltworks in Ellerslie, Ga.
We pooled all of our 2 1/2" strips and used the Scrappy Trips Around the World pattern to make quilts for a local battered women's shelter. Our local "machine guy" Lafayette, even brought us lunch!
We came up with three color ways - brights for any child, browns-blues-greens for boys, and a combo of pinks and greens for the Moms.By splitting into three groups, we left that day with the majority of the pieces to finish the quilts.One of the ladies, Karen, had her groups' pieces assembled and quilted in two days!
Thanks for all of your great patterns, but especially this one that was such fun to make and so successful!
This just fills my heart. This is why we do what we do! We get so much more back when we give ----no matter how much you give!
Thank you ladies for your valiant effort in making lives better for those around you.
Scrappy Trips of course can be found under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog. Have YOU made a Scrappy Trips quilt yet? They ARE addicting!
I should be back home tonight!
Remember, we are drawing for the fabric goodie bags I posted about on Wednesday HERE. If you haven’t left a comment there – go do so! Someone is going to win, it may as well be you!
