One or Two??

Should these make one quilt or two seperate quilts? Initially, I thought the first quilt would be the pieced backing for the square quilt (or vice-versa). But now that I look at them, I wonder if they should be two seperate quilts. What do you think? Anyway, I had fun creating these using a Moda jelly roll. If you don't know what that is just google it. Fun and easy to use. Not a whole lot more going on as I am spending most of my time preparing for a move back to the Grand Rapids area for the summer. By late June we should be in full swing-finishing off the 20+ quilt tops we have created and finding more creative uses for the loads of donated fabric. Can't wait!

New Quilt Tops

Hey Everyone! My mom and I have been busy quilting over the past two weeks! We have finished 11 quilt tops for MHC! The slide show to your right shows them all. It's amazing how much you can get done tandem quilting. She was the pinner and ironer and I was the sewer. This summer we have to get serious finishing all of these tops. If any blog readers want to finish any of these tops just let me know. They can be tied or quilted (by hand or sewing machine).
In the last few weeks we gave one quilt to the Morren family who all (mom, dad, and four boys) survived a devastating house fire. They received a quilt that had angels quilted in the corners because surely, there must have been angels protecting their family that day.
