As you can see from the photo, some of the "Little Pink Houses" quilts have been delivered to my local hospital. On Wednesday I presented Milica Kay (of the Cancer Care Center of Henry Ford Hospital, Clinton Twp., MI) with "Clear Skies" and "Chance of Showers." It feels good to have them all finished and ready for new owners. The plan is for them to be auctioned at a "survivors' event" on June 22nd.
The remaining 3 were promised to her just as soon as I can get them finished. I've started quilting "Hazy," but with my busy summer schedule, I'm not sure when it will be completed. I'll keep you posted on my progress and on the $$ we raise for free/reduced fee mammograms. :)

Change of Plans

After looking at the calendar, seeing what the coming weeks are bringing, and realizing that I have to have some "Little Pink Houses" quilts to the hospital by May 25th, I changed my plans. I put aside HAZY for now and pulled out CLEAR SKIES. Quilting 9 blocks seemed much more manageable than quilting 12 blocks.
I got right to work marking the quilt top, then layering it up. I've been working on it steadily (and have a sore finger for proof!) and am just about finished with the hand quilting. Just have to quilt along the border on both sides.
CHANCE OF SHOWERS now has the binding sewn on by machine. I just have to do the hand stitching to finish it off. And I'm in the process of making labels for both quilts.
I feel confident that these two quilts will be ready on time! Yay!
