Operation Kid Comfort Quilts

I haven't gotten much personal sewing done in the past week, but my quilt guild did make six quilts over the weekend for military kids at Fort Bragg whose parents are deploying.  The program is called Operation Kid Comfort.  One of our guild members has a contact who periodically asks if we can help.  Each quilt kit we receive is highly personalized with photos provided by the family.  My contribution was to help piece the upper left one and bind it and the lower right one. And I ran my mouth a lot since I had a lot of down time while one of the girls used my machine to quilt the same two quilts.  😄

I'm the one in the center in the blue shirt.
I also worked on the denim quilt I mentioned last week.  I have discovered that my long arm DOES NOT LIKE working on such a thick quilt, so this will be a one-off for me.  No more accepting denim quilts.

I plan to spend the next week binding the denim quilt, working on my Sunshowers quilt, possibly quilting my friend's Sew Sampler Apple Crisp quilt, and, if by some miracle I get all that done, then working on the partial setting blocks for the Bonnie Hunter Frolic quilt.  

If any of you readers out there are working on a Frolic quilt, I'd be happy to offer you 20% off any edge-to-edge quilting on it. That quilt is a lot of hard work, and you deserve a reward for finishing it! Stop by my long arm website, Quilting by Anne-Marie, to book services.
