On A Roll

I'm still busy quilting donated quilt tops and it's great to get so many finished. Taking a break from receiving donations gave me a chance to sort through the tops, measure their size and make suitable backings and bindings.

These quilts will soon be giving warm hugs to people in need and they will be needed as our weather is getting cooler.

 A very big thank you to everyone who measured and labelled their donated quilt tops as it's saved me a lot of time. I've already pin-basted more tops and hope to get more finishes soon.

Hugs, Jan Mac xx
