Two More Tops Finished

 Hello friends!  I have so much to write here but I am running out of time! We leave tomorrow afternoon from Grand Rapids.  We are flying to London for a 5 day stay (my husband has to work there) and then we fly to Bermuda from London next week Tuesday--and we will finally arrive in our new home.  I really have to get to bed because I know we won't sleep much tomorrow night but I wanted to show these two tops.  They are Quilting Bee tops--my mom will finish them up. 
Once again, I love the string block top for Harmony (there are 3 blocks that will be added to the back that you don't see here). The pink/purple hour glass block top isn't my favorite but I am sure that Frankee will love it.
Thanks once again to those who added blocks!
One other note: Thanks to those who have sent us quilts through '100 Quilts for Kids'.  We are going to meet our goal of providing quilts for the prison giveaway in November!!! We heard this week that there are going to be over 50 kids at the prison--wow! That is a huge group!  So we will bring about 70 quilts with us.  Amazing and humbling how God provides for our needs over and over again.
I will write again when I have a computer connection in Bermuda!  
Until then, keep quilting!!!

Good luck with all of your move and travels! I think the princess quilt will make her happy, Just spending time looking at all the cute fabrics like an I spy quilt will be fun.

Moves are always "life changing", sweeping out the old and bringing in the new. It is really great that you are doing your quilt project for the prison - something many of us forget to do! But here is something else you shouldn't forget: It is not only the month for Halloween, but breast cancer awareness month!!! Treat yourself or a loved one because you care! I am just stopping by with a reminder to do your self breast exam.
Here's a fun place to start! Everybody loves boob lube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p8pIHy2GRI
