My friend, Anne, has closed her quilt shop so she can spend more time with family and travel. She has a granddaughter in Spain she wants to visit.

On her last day of business she gifted me with over 730 yards of fabric to use to make donation quilts.

 The fabric she gave me is mostly to make quilts for kids.
 A lot of the  bolts have 10-12 yards, perfect for backings.
 I need to organize it so like fabrics are together
 There are some great fabrics to use in I Spy quilts
 Now I just need to come up with the patterns that will work with these fabrics. There is no hurry to make these quilts.
I do have a few patterns that use three 1 yard pieces of fabric and that will work with a some of these fabrics. 

I have decided that I won't be able to afford batting to use in all the quilts this fabric can make. I will make the tops, backings and bindings and then pass them along to Quilts of Compassion (Toledo, OH) and Project Linus to finish. 

I am looking forward to getting started on these tops, hoping I can make 2-3 a month.

I really is overwhelming. But I know it will bring comfort others.
