Finishing Touches

Today has been somewhat productive for me. I have stacks of project bins, the 12 x 12 size, up against the wall and every one of them is stuffed full. I decided to choose a box that has the blocks already made and are ready to be made into a quilt top. Almost finished with the first one and my goal over the weekend and before Thanksgiving is to get as many tops made as possible. Some of them are already tops but need outside borders or a little tweaking. Not sure how many there are but all the strips for borders and sashings are already cut, I just need to sew them together. Most of them will be charity quilts for our local Children’s Hospital. Every year I make charity quilts and give them in my family’s name. Well, back to sewing. Will post pictures later.

One top down, so many more to go! This is done in 30s fabric and will be going to Valley Children’s Hospital. I hope to get it quilted next week. Sorry, my picture taking is lousy!

About cozyquilts

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.
