This is a windmill quilt design. All the fabric, except the edge binding, were from the Moms, Granny and fabric donations. Here’s my favorite rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow…

I donated this quilt to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, via the Children’s Services Auxiliary of Ventura County, in November 2014.

We welcomed another addition to the family this year, our grand-nephew Reynolds! We suspect that Reny will follow in his Dad’s footsteps for a love of the ocean, so I used a super-cute fish and shark fabric so that he might learn early that while the ocean is a beautiful and wonderful place, that it is also something that requires respect. As a sailor, this is one of my personal mantras.

This is the Pretty Patches quilt design by Jean Ann Wright. The solid blue fabric used in the quilt and for the binding is fabric that was leftover from Edith, Reny’s maternal great-grandma. I suspect that Edith is up in heaven enjoying all her wonderful great-grandsons (currently four, but soon-to-be five of them)!

This is a 16-patch quilt design. The star of this quilt, and inspiration for the quilt name, are the cute little birds that I have shown in detail in the lower right corner of the picture. I used a mix of Edith’s leftover fabrics combined with some new fabrics. I also incorporated one of Granny’s hankies in the lower right corner, shown just above the bird fabric.

This will mark the 34th quilt donation since I began this project close to two years ago now. It is my deepest hope that just one of the quilts I donate will make a difference in a child’s life. I donated Tweedily Deedilly Dee to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, via the Children’s Services Auxiliary of Ventura County, in November 2014.
