In the past few months, I’ve been volunteering at an organization called Quilting For Community right here in Southern California. Quilting For Community, or Q4C for short, is a non-profit organization that serves the community through quilt making. Anyone who is interested in learning about quilting can come and learn for free. In a short time, I've seen someone from never having sewn before, to making beautiful quilts. Not only did she make the quilt top, she also quilted it on a long-arm machine. It's truly amazing!!
The organization just moved to a new and bigger location. One thing that is lacking are window covers. Several of us are making panels for window coverings, using mostly scraps, orphan blocks and left over fabrics from past projects.
This is the scraps fabric and orphan drunkard path blocks I got a few weeks ago.
Beautiful panel, I love how your turn these orphan blocks into pretty blocks!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing your inspiration, and linking up.
I love how you used up your orphan blocks for a great cause! The result is a gorgeous window panel. I can't wait to see all the panels together. Quilters are so generous and creative! Thanks for sharing on the 300th Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
