I don't quilt; however, I do make tote bags, walker bags, pillows, and wheelchair bags for my group, World of Charity Stitching and I would share the fabric (if I win) with some of the members who make the lap quilts for us-the quilts are donated to a senior citizen center, a Ronald McDonald House, a children’s hospital, and a domestic violence shelter.
Thanks,

I have seen some of the prettiest bags lately (I call them purses). I might be inclined to make a bag for myself with those pretty prints. Spring time will be coming soon and a new bag would be nice.
Congratulations on your month before blogiversary. I am not good at waiting either - I understand completely.
Thank you for the chance to win such nice goodies - love the Easter Bunny wall hanging and all the other goodies too :-)

One of my new year resolutions was to get more organized, so I'd love to use the fat quarters for an idea notebook/binder cover with a coordinating tote. A place to stash my thoughts, and a place to stash my secret supply of chocolate :)..er...I mean "energy bar"!!!! ;)I am a new follower and Robin from Quilty as Charged sent me here.
