Charity Quilt Tops #13 & 14

Today was a great day for sewing.  It was my sister's 60th birthday yesterday and she's visiting along with her mother-in-law, Jayne so we were able to chat while I worked on quilt tops.

More Pillowcases for Little Singer Community School

In the last 2 weeks I have made about 2 dozen pillowcases from my stash to send to Pine Ridge Reservation for the children.  Here are 3 more pillowcases I made this morning.

Tahoe quilts

My online quilting group is having a retreat in Lake Tahoe in August.  I sure wish I could be there but since I can't take more time off from work one of the ways I can participate is by making "tahoe blocks and quilts made from these blocks.  Today, I was able to make 2 quilt tops using blocks I had already made.

Pillowcases for Little Singer Community School

I am trying to make a difference in the Native American children's lives as they have so very little. One way I do that is to participate in drives organized by a non profit group.  These drives focus on the basics and are sent to the schools for the children.  The web site I am a member of is listed below: http://www.friendsof pineridgereservation. org/  .  I had participated in the past but have just started participating again.  There is a drive coming up for new pillowcases, pillows and PJ's for the children. I have chosen to make 2 dozen pillowcases from my fabric stash.
3 pillowcases
6 pillowcases
6 more pillowcases
The bottom 4 pillowcases I have duplicates of with different colored bands so they can be more individualized.

9 Patch Swap

For my online dyeing group I am participating in a 9 patch block swap using out hand dyed fabrics. Here are my blocks for the next 6 weeks.  The blocks can vary a little from what I send out as sometimes I don't have enough fabric to make the same blocks for everyone.
