Well today I started looking at free patterns. I looked on line and found several that I think I can modify to lap size. So tonight I am going through my scraps to see what I can kit up, That way I will be ready to start sewing after I get my four commitments completed. I have three queens and a wall hanging to complete prior to starting on my charity quilts. Good news is that there is a progress on that front.
In the mean time I have volunteered to quilt 2 quilts for a friend in northern Iowa. She organizes community sew days three or four times a year. I'll throw them on the longarm and get them quilted next week for her.
There is also a group of woman who have been making baby quilts for the local hospitals. That I have extended my longarm services to.
Sew (pun intended) I can start working on my project of charity quilts even if I am not quite ready to start sewing the tops. :-)
