Hello Cuties, I have been so busy lately, but it's all good.

First off, I wanted to show you the quilting done on this QOV quilt top I made, because the quilter did a custom job of it and it is amazing! She quilted each section, block or border with it's own stitching. Look and see for yourself. The back is almost as pretty as the front. It was given Thursday, at a presentation ceremony.
We just got home from the fundraiser/auction for the lady with the kidney disease I told you about. I showed you the items I made and donated 2 table runners and 2 baby quilts for. I was curious to see how much they went for, but also thought if they went for hardly nothing I would bid and buy them back. I didn't have to worry. They raised $330. for the four pieces, so I was satisfied. I only had about $20 in expense, plus my work, because the fabric was all donated. I came home with a good feeling that this would, in a small way, help the lady with medical expenses and also to know my work was appreciated.
On the way back today we dropped in and saw the new baby Kinsley. She is a doll! Her hair is almost jet black and thick as a fur cap. Of course, she is a good baby and never woke up while we were there.
My oldest daughter was there and when I asked about baby Dawson, she said he had gained almost 10 ounces. So all is well here and hope you all are too.
Maybe things will settle down and I can be on Cute more. Until then Happy Birthday to those I missed, prayers for all my Cuties and hope you all have a great day,as always,Toogie

Beautiful! - Piecing and quilting. I'm starting a Tshirt quilt for my oldest grandson's graduation gift, but it will be extremely simple compared to this! I haven't quilted in a long, long time.

Oh please show and tell when you're finished. I'm sure it will be perfect . That is something I was asked to do but haven't tried a t-shirt quilt yet. What do you use to stabilize your blocks?

The quilt is awesome front and back. I'm glad your items did well on the auction. Regardless of the monies involved, the lady will feel the love of all who gave and that should help her physical health immensely. You were sweet to be part of that effort.

I enjoyed it immensely and even got to meet the recipient. I knew her aunt and her aunt wanted to introduce me to her. I hope she does as well as the auction did.

Toogie, that is a beautiful quilt, and the quilting adds so much to it....I have a great granddaughter name Kenzleigh also, just spelled differently than your g-grand. She too was born with very dark hair, but lost it, and now the cutes little blonde with brown eyes....she just turned 3.
Great job on your craft work and the work that you have put into so much.

What a beautiful quilt. You are lucky to have a quilter to do such an amazing job. Of course your work is beautiful as well. Glad the other items brought in a good price to help the sick lady. Hugs

We are lucky to have a few long arm quilters and can do this amazing stitching. This one is not programmed so that makes it even more amazing. Thanks for looking Shirley

Hubby took that picture and I'm never sure what he's getting, so I guess it shows my uncertainty in the photo. He has been known to cut heads off, etc.-lol
Thanks and I was wowed too with her quilting! This is my second quilt I pieced for QOV but the first one I got back from the quilter. I was overjoyed with her work. I'm not sure if she will do the other quilt or it will go to someone else but I don't think anything will top this.-I sure was glad about the fundraiser. My friend hand embroidered a set of college team pillowcases that went for about $85 and a pre-quilted baby quilt panel that all she did was bind it. It also went for $85. She was pleased as well.

I appreciate your compliment, so thank you. However, I did not do this quilting. I just cut, pieced and sewed the top together.
