Quilters are a generous bunch

Several weeks ago, I saw a post on Debra Spincic's blog offering scraps to anyone who wanted them. I commented that I would take them for my church's Hugs Ministry. We are sewing blankets (not just quilts, but polar fleece, crocheted and knitted as well) and matching them with a stuffed animal for the local sheriff and fire departments to have on hand when they go to a fire or accident involving children.
Last Friday this is what I found on my doorstep.









You probably can't tell by the pic how big the box is. It is nearly 20" square and 10" deep. It is huge!


And this is what it looked like after I opened it and looked through it. The strips and scraps just kept falling out. She must have had to sit on the box to get it closed.:-)


Thank you Debra from the bottom of my heart!


You will find a link for Debra's blog in the sidebar. She is a wonderful quilter.

I am glad you can use them instead of them sitting around here getting old!
