Charity Quilt

This has been a bad allergy week...I thought I was over the worst when I was able to piece the back and then baste the disappearing 9 patch but I was wrong. The weather turned; we had a terrible sand storm followed by strong winds which just blew everything-pollen and sand everywhere-my eyes still haven't recovered! Lots of blogging friends are also suffering all over the world...hope we all feel better soon.

This week I got a call from Lola, the Haifa guild is again collecting charity quilts. They're donating the quilts to the children's ward at Rambam Hospital in Haifa-the largest hospital in north Israel. Lola and I met at the Quinglish last month. They're giving the quilts in two weeks so I decided I better give something I have finished and thought of this cute cow quilt that I finished last year as part of the 2008 New Year's Challenge. Its 40" x 40" so it seems a good size.

How did I miss this cute quilt when you showed it before?! What an ingenious use of that cow print fabric indeed. Hope the allergies let up soon; my right eye waters constantly. I heard this is a very bad year (although I seem to hear that every).

That quilt reminds me of the cow quilt I made years ago. I don't know where it ended up as I haven't had it in my possession in many years. I used a Debbie Mumm pattern for mine.

What a delightful quilt. Some little person is going to smile when they receive it. I make quilts for our Children's Hospital. They always need more. That makes me sad until I get home and grab some bright cheerful fabric and think about it making some child smile. :)Bea

Oh that is so adorable. Definitely a cute animal theme going here lately. :-)

I am so sorry about your allergies. I know a lot of people who are suffering right now. But I know that doesn't make you feel any better. Hope you can get some relief soon.

Hope the sand storms abate & your allergies too!
