Quilt donations

I donated eight quilts to the Ronald McDonald house in Minneapolis this afternoon. They were piling up and I ran out of room on my shelf so it was time for them to move on. Six of the eight were HeartString Project Quilts.

Wow, what a lovely pile of colours and patterns. I bet they were glad to receive this lot.I don't know if I could part with the chinese coins, I think it's gorgeous, but I'm sure they'll be appreciated in their new home.

What a wonderful pile of quilts. I'll bet the folks at Ronald McDonald House were doing the dance when you came in the door.

Mary, those eight recipients of your quilts will be thrilled, I'm sure, when they see how much love and care
was stitched into each one. Your patriotic string star is just fabulous! What a wonderful layout and use of colors!

Vicky said...

I applaud you, Mary! What a beautiful stack of quilts!

What a wonderful looking stack of quilts. I bet they were just thrilled to get them. So many wonderful bright, cheery colors. The heartstrings group - and you as the fearless leader - have done well.

I got my postage stamp quilted today. Hope to make the binding and machine stitch it on tomorrow. By the end of our sewing day next Saturday I'll have my first Hotel Hope quilt done for donation.

A truly gorgeous stack of quilts. I'm sure the recipients will love them as much as we do, maybe even more.
