December is the month that I like to set aside to make quilts for charity. I wrote a previous blog about 4 quilts that I made and donated to my quilt guild. Guess what? When I dropped them off with our coordinator, she asked me if I liked using scraps, and before I knew what I was saying, I said enthusiastically, "YES"!
"Oh good", she replied. "Come on in and let's go into the charity quilt set-up in my garage." One of our members had just dropped of 6 boxes - yes 6 boxes full - of scrap cotton fabric from a local manufacturer of bicycle skirts. I didn't know that bicycle skirts were made of cotton, so I tried to back out, but she quickly assured me the fabric was all cotton.
You probably know what happened next.....
A huge pile of fabric ended up sitting on my drafting table, just waiting to be made into more quilt tops. I think January will now also be a month for making quilts for charity. Hey, what else am I going to do? Everything is still shut down because of COVID-19, and we can't go and visit anybody and they can't come and visit us.
I hope you are also finding things to keep you occupied (and productive).💚
