My good friend Rose Marie and I work on making quilts for the Baptist Children's Home each week. Lately I have been  making blocks of strips of material and turning every other one. This was one of our favorites  chartreuse, pink, turquoise and black.    

We tie our quilts with 2 strands of yarn.

This one is waiting to be tied with the gold yarn
We just finished this quilt up this morning ready to sew around the border and tie. This quilt is special  because it includes   6 Log Cabin Blocks that came to use in a  box of fabric supplies from Kathleen one of our faithful longtime members that passed away from cancer this year. I selected other fabrics that complemented the blocks and now it's soon on it's way to the Children's Home.
Purple, yellow and black a very pretty combination! All girls young and old like purple!

These quilts will be loved by the children, something they can cuddle in and feel warm.
