Awesome Quilts Received from Linda S.

Linda S. a chapter volunteer made these quilts  from her own fabrics and donated them to LQFK. Thanks so much Linda! They are all so cute, and I know the children that receive these quilts will surely smile and know that lots of love was sewn into these from you.

Four more of Susan's quilt pictures found!

When Susan first heard about our Lincoln chapter of Quilts For Kids back in May, she made these four very wonderful quilts for boys and donated them to our chapter! Unfortunately, like the quilts in the previous post, these didn't get posted here. But, since I've been trying to reorganize the files on my computer, I come across these, and seen they hadn't been posted! They are too beautiful not to share them! You did an awesome job on them Susan, thanks so much.

Quilts donated to LQFK

I found these pictures of some quilts that were donated this summer, but that unfortunately didn't get posted here when I was having trouble with my computer, and then also my camera.I wanted to share their beauty with you. And also let the volunteers who sewed so much love and talent into these, know that they were greatly appreciated! Most of these were donated to Omaha Childrens Hospital in our recent delivery to them. And the others, were donated last week  to St. Elizabeth hospital, here in Lincoln. Thanks so much, Ann, Susan, and Elaine! Make sure to visit Elaine's blog also, she makes some truly gorgeous quilts and has a very enjoyable and informative  blog as well!

 These two bright and cheery quilts were made from Ann's own stash, then donated to LQFK! I think every child would love to have a quilt with these bright beautiful balloons on it! And the second, is so cute with its bright polka dots!

These two are from Susan, she pieced both from LQFK kits. And did such a wonderful job on quilting them! Thanks Susan, for both of them, they are so pretty! Here's the first one.

When I was cutting the kit for the second one, I accidentally shorted her two strips in the kit. Because of my mistake, she was unable to make two more nine patch blocks to complete another row, but look how wonderfully she managed to compensate for my error! I love both the fabric and the technique she chose to fix my boo boo!

Here are the two that Elaine pieced from kits and quilted so beautifully! The first one is actually a four patch, but doesn't seem like it with the colors placed the way they are! I also had to mention the perfect name she picked for it. Purple Slurple!

A close up of her beautiful quilting!

And this nine patch is really cute too!

Bags Of Love - Lincoln Quilters Guild

I sewed these bags from kits that I brought home from guild. They will hold a quilt, personal care items, an outfit, or other items, and will be given to children whom are removed from their homes in emergency situations. when sometimes there is no time to gather up personal items to take with them. These provide children with their very own Bags Of Love.

Santa Sacks

I sewed these cute Santa Sacks this summer for the Santa Sock program at the Lincoln Quilters Guild. These sacks will be filled with items like mittens, hats, personal care items, small toys, etc. and will be distributed to children at Christmas time. They are so simple, and just takes a fat quarter!
