“Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.” St Francis of Assisi
Our state quilt guild is making quilts for children in foster care that have little chance of being adopted. They often have nothing of their own. The guild would like to give bed size quilts to these children so that they have something to call their own. My local chapter met on a Saturday to start work on some quilts for this project. We had fabric donated from members and from a local quilt shop. There was a huge piece of the yellow/gold plaid that one of my friends affectionately referred to as Archie Bunkers chair fabric. I grabbed that and a big stack of outdoor themed 6 1/2 inch squares and went to work. We decided to focus our attention on 7-14 year old boys. This first quilt had outdoor themed fabrics including feathers, kokpelli’s and quilt a few oranges and browns. I chose a coyote howling at the moon to adorn this one with.
And best of all, there was only about 3 inches of the yellow/gold fabric left!
