Hand 2 Help 2014

Every year over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sarah organizes a charity quilt event in which quilters all over have a chance to make and donate quilts to reputable charities. I joined in last year and again this year!  The little quilt above will hopefully find a wonderful home and offer some comfort and security to someone in need.

These next two quilt tops are not for the charity but they are done!  I love the little ladybugs!
 This Double Irish Chain/Dresden quilt will find a loving spot on our family couch as soon as I find just the right fabric for the back.
 She's so pretty.  :)  I really do love blue.
Well, it's a long weekend and I'm sure to have some extra fun! -April@Little Mama Hen

Quilt Stash

Add caption
Finished up my Ladybug top.  Now I have to decide what backing fabric to add and how to quilt it.  She's a 46" square and she was so much fun to make!  My own Little Miss Ladybug helped me pick out the border fabric.  She said the butterflies made it look like a garden.  :)  Seven is such a darling age; actually I say that about every age. I love my two little sweeties.  :)

Most people like to show their fabric stashes, but it seems I have more of a quilt stash!  NINE quilt tops ready and several still being pieced...this isn't even all of them.  :)  I love each of them!  After I'm done with a quilt top, I usually fold it up and place it in a pillow case to keep the dust off it.  How do you store your projects?  I don't like the creases that folding them up causes but I guess that's just the way it goes.  I wish I had some sort of bar that I cold drape them over so they cold be on display while they wait their turn to be quilted.

Well, have a wonderful Weekend and a very Happy Mothers' Day!!  -April@Little Mama Hen

May Showers

 It's been raining the last couple of days and I love it.
 MaoMao has the right idea.  I wish I could take naps during the day...all day.
Some pretty new stars wrapped in an Irish Chain.  Now with a finished top, it's time to pick a fabric backing and quilt it.
