One of our latest quilts, "Marching to First Base" went to a little 4 yr old boy with leukemia. He lives in town and one of our local luncheonettes offered to give 20% of the days profits to his medical expenses. I decided that in addition to having lunch there with my mom, we'd bring him a quilt to cuddle with. I hope it 'works'.... (lunch was delicious!!). Hope this makes you well, Gavin!

Just wanted to update you all on the progress from the other night.
We had a good turnout; Jane P, Kathy S, Anne R, Margaret M, Muriel and Nancy.
Muriel is working on the binding on Margaret's Green D9P (with pink binding),
I finished tying the gray ties into the Lime Green/Red and Gray quilt that Kathy put together, but I haven't found the right shade of gray binding material in my stash. I'll have to go to Joanns (darn, lol). I think I'll call it Lime Green Surprise!
I have the 'serged squares' quilt that I have to machine-quilt this month. Hope to have it done by April's mtg.
I added borders and cornerstones (offset-due to lack of enough fabric that we had in stash- so we improvised) to the little pink one that Kathy made. Really adorable. The border fabric really sets it off. Not sure what to call this one, as it looks like the pinwheels are fenced in some wealthy person's yard. Any suggestions? (my thought is "Quartermaster"...)
Okay, the Margaret news... Keep her in your prayers as she called this morning to say she was flying to FL as her son isn't probably gonna last very long (kidney transplant, has had seizures/ small strokes and is in a coma at the moment. They told her to come down if she can as they don't expect much more...sad.
But on a lighter note, we'll show you a quilt she just finished (pie quilt pattern). Just lovely- some of my favorite color/combos.
