I love the idea of a day of service on Martin Luther King Jr Day. I first read about it on Cheri's blog and liked her idea of working on a quilt for charity. I knew exactly which project I was going to work on. Last year I was at Joyful Quilters (my guild's charity quilting group) and I cut two kits for lap sized quilts. I brought them home to put them together and never got around to it. So I pulled them out today to work on them.
I only got to this quilt today and still need to add two more borders. I didn't get as much sewing time as I normally would when the kids are a school and hubby is at work. But I did get quite a lot done with the time that I had and I am happy I had the chance to participate with all the other bloggers out there making quilts for charity. Now to go spend some more time with my family!
