Meeting Vicki is on my quilting bucket list! She and I don’t live that far from each other, but we just haven’t met up (all my fault!). I look forward to remedying that little problem in a few weeks. Anyway, back to Vicki… She is one of the most versatile quilters I have ever met. If you haven’t come across her blog… click here to visit! You will be surprised by all the things Vicki can do (besides quilting!).
I remember musing to Vicki a while back about feeling bad about throwing away some of my smaller scrap pieces. Vicki told me to send the scraps to her because she knows of a sweet lady from her guild who can definitely use my scraps to make charity quilts. Karen A. of Country School Quilters used the leftovers of the quilts she already made with the scraps I sent to make the following “twice leftover” quilt.
I was really touched when I saw how the scraps of the scraps came together in a sweet, bright and happy quilt that Karen is going to use to bless someone! Looking at the fabrics got me in an “I SPY” mode to see if I could remember what quilts the scraps are from… At a quick glance, I counted about 30 different quilts.
Thank you so much, Karen, for blessing my heart by blessing many many others with your talent! Seeing that scrappy quilt made my day!
I would love to hear any snippets you / your guild might have about making charity quilts.

Thanks for stopping by. I shall chat with you again tomorrow.
