Charity quilts

A while ago , I asked if anyone liked Barney as I had some fabric and stitched squares that were originally intended to make cushions for my daughter , but she was no longer interested.
 A reader suggested sending them to World of Charity Stitching , so I did . The organisers managed to get a few more squares and have made them into a quilt , so I thought I'd show the end product. What a lovely quilt to make someone smile .
 Also, Jane at Stitch for Pleasure ,Stitch for Charity has recently completed some quilts that have squares on that I stitched two or three years ago , so more pics.



Some fantastic work in these quilts. I do enjoy doing the charity squares. All those lovely charts that you'd like to stitch , but wouldn't know what to do with them afterwards.
 There are a lot of groups out there that do amazing things with stitched pieces ,so if you are thinking about it , I would like to urge you to go ahead .
 Thanks for reading ,
 Cath
