Many Hands, One Charity Quilt

One of my Mom’s customers brought her an old quilt top recently.  I believe the customer said she had made it long ago and put it away with no plans.  It was unearthed and was found to be a bit stained and no longer anything she wanted, but she thought it should be finished, and so she brought it to my Mom.

They both worked – successfully! – to get all of the stains out, and then my Mom quilted it up.  The customer really didn’t want it back, so my Mom next handed it to me to bind and I have since given it to my mother-in-law, who has given it to a shelter for recent immigrants that she often supports.  My mother-in-law was thrilled, and the rest of us were happy.

It is a nice twin-sized quilt, and I’m sure the shelter is putting it to good use.

It’s a good reminder for all of us that someone will love and appreciate those no-longer-loved half-finished quilts we have sitting about, so it is always a good thing to finish them up.

Yay for quilts on beds!  (Sorry – no better picture!  I only thought to snap this one picture the morning I handed it to my mother-in-law.)
