I've offered to donate my Long Arm Quilting services to the effort - so I expect that I'll be very busy in July and August helping out. I've already done a couple of quilts for flood victims - and one raffle quilt that will be used to raise money for the effort.
I've also had a few quilts on and off the Freeda in the past week -
Here is a Thimbleberries Block-of the Month from a few years back. Marj did a great job on it - and now it just needs bound and on a bed! Glide thread; Come Dance with Me panto.
Marj's Thimbleberries BOM - sorry, not the best pic of the quilting
Bonnie pieced this beautiful vintage quilt - pineapple blocks and appliqued flowers in the borders - all vintage fabrics!

I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of the backing - it's a nice wide-back - have I mentioned before that I love wide-backs? They are so easy, almost always guaranteed to be square - and no seams! Priceless!!
Tomorrow I have two baby quilts lined up for Freeda - then a quick trip up to Whitehorse for birthday celebrations with some wonderful old friends - not "old" - just good friends!
When I get back, I'll be helping Betty Ann get acquainted with Freeda . . . stay tuned! By the way - I'm really feeling comfortable in my space at Addies . . . I meet so many quilters and have lots of interest in the long arming process! I thought everyone knew how a long arm worked, but that's not so!
