2016 Charity Quilt Show
That's all folks!
During the calendar year 2016, I had the goal of making an average of 10 charity quilts per month either for area people here in Poland or for my husband to take to various countries farther east as he teaches Old Testament courses.
I'm learning some sizes are better than others to give away. For example, if I make a twin/single as big as most people expect them in the states, they are too big and are hard for people to deal with. The same with a double or queen. It is best to try to fit what I make with what they are used to, and not "what I want them to have".
The common sizes for duvet covers here are 140x200cm, 160x200cm and 220x200cm. I've decided to aim more at the 150x200cm for a typical kid's single or adult single quilt. By the time it is quilted and washed, it may shrink up closer to 140, but it is still fine for the typical Polish person.
I thought you might find it interesting to see all of the charity quilts I finished in 2016 in one place. I could not have done it without so many of you donating tops, fabric squares, or fabric!
Obviously, I am most thankful to God for giving me strength and health to be able to do this!
Now, I'll turrn my head towards 2017.
