Merry Christmas!

It will be a quiet day around here today.  We met up with family at my Mom's house yesterday afternoon.  That allows everyone to get to the other side of their families today.

I plan on getting the binding applied to the last quilt of the year, and I should be able to get it all stitched down in the next couple of days.  It is a large quilt for one of the family beds at the center.  I'll get a picture of it before I deliver it on Friday.

Speaking of deliveries, here is are some pictures of the quilts that I delivered to Iowa Crisis and Advocacy on October 30th.

 Quilt 47
 Quilt 48
 Quilt 53
Quilt 54

The first four quilts are all double or queen size, the last two will fit a twin size bed.

Quilts 35 and 36 were donated tops made by a group of ladies up in northern Iowa.  They quilt for charity, but did not have the means to get the tops quilted so they were donated to us.  Thank you Marcia and Friends!

Quilts 47 & 48 were pieced by Renise and Viv, at a charity sew day that Lynne hosted earlier this fall.  The fabric was donated by Jacque at Adel Quilting and Dry Goods. Thank you ladies for your support

Quilts 53 and 54 came to me from Peg.  Peg is another longarm quilter and she volunteers her quilting on quilts from "Heartstrings" a group that makes string quilts for charities.  Once the longarm quilter is done quilting the quilt, she can donate it to a charity of her choice.  Peg's choice was Iowa Comfort.  Peg thank you for thinking of us, and sharing your talents!

Hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season!
