I started quilting tops by getting involved with a couple of charity groups that needed help. They had assemblers and supplies but few to finish with quilting. Tieing a quilt is just not the same as quilting it. I supported a local chapter of the National Linus Program and another local charity called Safe House. These charities give quilts to burn victims, children's camps for fallen military parents, foster kids who have been torn from their homes with nothing but their pajamas and much more. There are several groups that quilt for these kinds of childhood tramas. There are several quilts that I did not take pictures of, but that had added sensory features. Ribbons, crinkle stuffed hot air balloons, eye-lash string for tree tops, and play by play of a baseball diamond by sketching with my machine. It is a great way to learn to be creative.
