I had a customer call me yesterday and ask if there was any way I could quilt a lap size quilt for her before Nov. 1. She told me that it was going to be auctioned off, for a local abuse shelter. After hearing about what the quilt was going to be used for I told her that I would quilt it for her next week, and that I would donate my quilting services. She immediately thanked me and quickly told me that she was willing to pay for my services. I responded that I fully supported the work of the organization, and that I hoped to be making quilts from scrap fabric for a similiar organization close to my home. The customer loved the idea, and has offered to bring some of her scrap fabric to help the cause.
I originally thought I would be making lap size quilts, and I will. But the true need is for twin size to queen size quilts. I need to get back to the drawing board and find patterns that will go together quickly and lend themselves to the scrappy look.
Anyone know of any?
