  QFOs (Quilts For Others) - the Production Line

Our ‘Production Line’ is an on-going effort which produces completed quilts to send off for local needs and the 'Very Snuggly Quilts' program

Unwanted blocks     or quilt tops     or fabric     or batting? 

Donate them and we'll complete the quilts and send them on to a good cause - it's these donations that keep our 'Production Line' moving along!
 

Donations?   Queries?   Have you made a quilt top but need batting and/or backing fabric to complete your QFO?

See Judy at a meeting

Long-Tail Cast On: This is how I like to cast on, especially for sox, it gives a firm but elastic result.
