It was that time again

Over the last month or so I have really been trying to organize my quilting areas....including the dog bed stuffing.  

I have sisters coming for a couple weeks in mid July, and I really need to have a handle on all my stuff!  (Little do they know that by the time they leave for home they are all going to be experts at ironing, cutting and folding fabric......insert evil giggle)

My normal routine is that I stack up the donations until I fill the space and then make a delivery run.

Well as you can see the doggy beds needed to be delivered to AHeintz57 dog rescue.  I could not get one more bed on that pile.  I do have to pile them up like that...otherwise they go to the rescue with dog hair already on them.  Hawkeye thinks he needs to quality test each and everyone of them.

A couple of days after I delivered them.  I saw a picture of one of their dogs on their facebook page.  He was laying on that bottom bed.  I remember when I made that one that I was shaking my head at myself....wondering why I made it so darn big and heavy.  And now I know, it was meant for that particular dog.... any smaller and it would not have worked for him.  Love it when it all works out!

See that pac n play in the picture?  That is where I normally store the finished quilts prior to deliveries.  It was full!  I needed to get the quilts delivered so Owen could have his bed when he visited this past weekend.

I delivered 10 quilts and 5 pillowcases to the center on the 19th of May. They were very appreciative of the quilts, and loved the fact that at least two of the hope quilts were little boy themed.  I should have the 2014 gallery updated by the time this posts.  Quilts 137- 146 were all delivered.

Here is a look at the pillowcases that were donated.  Jana, the director of the center, loved that this months donations came in a set.  They come in very handy for their family quarters.

We spoke briefly about their need for pillowcases and she said the need is still there for them.  When a client leaves they take their pillow and pillowcase with them.

I am going to spend some time cutting more kits, so if there is anyone who would like to work on them let me know.

Thank you to the two people who donated the pillowcases.  Thank you also to everyone who has been cutting and saving those scraps for doggy beds.

Special thanks to Kathy B., she volunteered her time and longarm to quilt the blue quilt from last weeks post.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
