Charity Quilts

Original Quilts feels it is important to offer time to work on charity quilts. I've spent many hours doing charity work, but with Original Quilts and Bug Fabric my time is limited, so I try to donate when I can. Here are some of the quilt's I've worked on for charity. At Stone Soup we make quilts for patients at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle. At Block Party Quilter's, we make quilts for Ronald McDonald House, and in Quilter's Anonymous we make premature baby quilts. For the Stray Threads Quilt Guild and Dress a Girl Around the World, I've donated many yards of fabric! (Please do not ask for donations - our donations are handled for the year.) I also do China Orphanage quilts. See the quilts that I have helped make for these charities below:

100 Good Wishes Yahoo Group Charity Quilt

I received this quilt as a pieced top, and I quilted it with hearts and did the binding work. It was a labor of love from all the women in the OHGWQ Yahoo group. Thanks to all those women with helping hands who created blocks, and pieced it!

Half the Sky Charity Quilt

This quilt was a labor of love from our Yahoo 100 Good Wishes Quilt Group. We had a bug fabric exchange where we all exchanged fabrics with bugs on them. Chris Schulte collected the bug blocks for this quilt and pieced the top. She sent it to me, and I added a border, quilted, and finished the binding work. We will now ship this to Half the Sky www.halfthesky.org, and they will either auction this off, or take it to one of the orphanages in China.

Quilts for a China Orphanage

A friend of mine in North Carolina is waiting for her travel date to go to China to pick up her new daughter. In the waiting, she asked me if I could help in getting these four cuddle quilts made so that she can take them and give them to the orphanage. I have a friend who offered to do the piecing of the tops for this project, then I quilted them and attached the bindings. The final hand work on the bindings will be done by my friend prior to her trip to China. The four quilts are shown, and the last photo shows the detail of the hearts in the quilting. 

Completed February 2003.

Stone Soup Quilting

Many people come together to make the quilts for patients at Fred Hutch. A group of women make up the quilt kits, some piece the tops, others quilt, and some finish bindings. 

I quilted these four quilts, and finished the binding on them and delivered them back to Stone Soup Quilting in December 2002.

China Orphanage Quilt

The blocks of this quilt were made by a client of mine. I added borders to the blocks to make them all the same size and added sashing between them. I gave this quilt to my friends Cindy & Richard to take with them to China to pick up their adoptive daughter. They gave this quilt to the people at the orphanage in China, so that a child in need of comfort can be wrapped in this warmth.

Each of the nine sampler blocks were machine quilted a bit different. Completed June 2002.
