Paying it Forward

Another 12" x 16" quilt for veterans.

It's so important for me to use my talent and extensive fabric stash to make something that benefits someone else.  I do one large quilt or a few small quilts each year to give back.  These are a few of the projects.

 For a few years Virginia Spiegel did the postcards for the American Cancer Society.  These are a few I made and sent.  When I was in Houston I bought some beautiful cards from other artists I admire.  She's since done auctions and other fun things through Fiberart for a Cause.

Jamie Fingal is working with Veteran's First and Furnishing Hope.  A large group of us make 12" x 16" quilts for veterans.  The first was for a family that had lived in Hawaii and their color scheme was blue, yellow, green.  The second request was any house with an American flag.

This is the panel (in progress) I made for a 14 foot by 5 foot quilt that we hung in our local library.  It was for the children's section.  It's great to visit the quilt when I go to the library.
For a picture of the entire quilt go to:  or click on the Cut-Loose Quilters link I have on the right side column of my blog.  It's the banner on top of the Cut-Loose Quilters blog.

Yes, I have made a lap quilt or two for raffle purposes.

A baby quilt I made years back to raffle for women's retreat, so they can pay scholarships.
And, gasp, it's a pattern, Karen Stone.

Another raffle quilt from the past.
