Covid Stay-at-Home Quilts for Operation Shower

Since stay-at-home recommendations went into effect last April, I've had time to make donation quilts for Operation Shower. OS provides baby showers to expecting military families, some of whom are deployed far from family and friends. The quilts I've made since April have now all gone to my guild's OS coordinator who will deliver them to OS for me. 








Making these gave me something to do and kept me out of trouble throughout most of the stay-at-home time. The November finish was squeaked in recently between tasks associated with moving, but I wanted it finished and out to Operation Shower rather than have to move a UFO and ship it back later. 

If I had to be stuck at home, I'm glad I was able to use the time productively. Bonus for me - I got to play with my stash and have the pleasure of creating these little quilts. 

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict

  7. Gorgeous assortment of quilts that will light up the recipients face, hearts and spirits. Thanks for sharing.

  8. How wonderful to have completed so many quilts for a good cause. You used up some stash that doesn't need to be moved, kept yourself busy (well moving does that as well) and made some beautiful quilts to welcome new babies.

  9. You are amazing Jan. Love the soft tones used in many of your quilts. Your eye for color is wonderful.
