A couple more fun quilts pieced by Mary. This kitty quilt is wonderful!
Sometimes I see members of quilting groups on Facebook ask where they should donate their quilts. There are so many charities that would love to have them. As you know, I work with Annapolis Quilts for Kids.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

Last weekend I dropped I off some kid quilts at Annapolis Quilts for Kids and grabbed more quilts to get quilting. Even simple quilts can have a big impact. 
The simple meander is a great way to get back into the swing of quilting.

What's Happening In Perkatory from ... Cat Patches

It's the worst day of the year because I have a fasting blood draw this morning (just routine), and that means I haven't had my coffee. I cannot be held responsible for anything I say or write. Also, I haven't had my breakfast, and my stomach is grumbling

Which brings me to something really worth grumbling about...paper-piecing. Yesterday's bout reminded me why I hate paper-piecing so much. First, there's the mess, and the waste, and the pieces that are too small. But the worst part is realizing a couple of pieces down the road ...

A couple more quilts pieced by Mary for Annapolis Quilts for Kids.
And another by Mary. She makes panels so much more interesting than a panel tries to be.
This is the stack of quilts I have ready to go back for binding.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I picked up so many quilts at the last Annapolis Quilts for Kids meeting. I am taking some time off this week, so I should be able to work through some of them. This one got some waves and swirls to keep with the underwater theme.
And you can never go wrong with a meander.

I really filled up my bag at the last Annapolis Quilts for Kids. I think I counted 12 or 13 quilts.
These little quilts are quick to quilt and make a big impact on the children who receive them.

I picked up another stack of fun charity quilts from Annapolis Quilts for Kids on Saturday. I spent some time quilting some up during the long weekend. 
This one was quilted with the humble meander. 
I moved into the flower motif for the second quilt of the day. I love these big petals!
These will be joined by a few more over the next few weeks.

Remains of the Day from ... Cat Patches

Matthew paid me a surprise visit yesterday, and so my plans for the day were put on hold. We passed one another as I was leaving to get my hair cut. By the end of the day, Smitty was downright despondent over the lack of sewing time.


Sadie gave up and napped in the cubby of her scratching pole. Sometimes she likes to get into that space where the toy mouse hangs.


Matthew stayed the day, ate dinner with us, and then stayed the night. He'll head back to spend the day with Lyndsey this afternoon. I'll be ...

I've been working through the quilt tops I picked up at the last Quilts for Kids meeting. Everything from fun string-pieced blocks to log cabin blocks. 
Both of these were pieced by other members of the group. I trimmed them so they will be ready for binding when I drop them off. 
I'll be dropping off this stack of nine quilts at Annapolis Quilts for Kids tomorrow.

Quilted up this fun little quit top mad by Trudy.
The backing was too small, so I pieced in a little more to get it done. Trimmed and ready for binding. I'll be dropping off a stack tomorrow at Annapolis Quilts for Kids.

I here are a couple charity quilts for Annapolis Quilts for Kids.
Both of these were pieced by Mary. I couldn't resist replicating the swirls from the gray fabric in the quilting. Now the little planes can fly around in those currents.

Well, almost.

I picked up this stack of quilt tops and backings last week at the Annapolis Quilts for Kids. The meeting was a week early so it wouldn't cut into the Easter weekend. I'm hoping to make some progress on these over the weekend. Wish me luck!
