I am posting a little early so we can all have a little more time to play! We seem to be going with a theme for January, different types of Friendship blocks and I hope that will bring us closer not only as a group of quilters but as friends. This block looks easy but is just a little bit harder and we have to watch our triangle placement, but what a great way to use up stash! Remember, it is a 12 inch block and you can use whatever colors you prefer. If you want to make it smaller, please do so. Remember, most of the blocks will be coming from Quilters Cache.
Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy.
I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital.
Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal.
Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up.
I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested.
Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
