At the Rainier

May 26, 2010

Here’s the second quilt that the residents of the Rainier made. This one is for one of the residents who is quite sick and waiting to have heart surgery. We have not yet been able to give her the quilt as she has drifted back to the streets. I’m keeping it safe for her until she is in a more stable situation.

We’ve started working on individual projects now. Some of the ladies have made some garments or things for their rooms like curtains or pillow covers. We’ve got this bin full of fabric scraps. None of the pieces are very big, and let’s just say it is an interesting assortment. I wanted to come up with some way to use them creatively. Someone had also donated the insides of some ski jackets, at least that’s what I think they are – they are made of a satin lining and polyester batting all sewn together in the shape of a jacket, but the outer fabric is missing. I was going to throw them out, but it seemed like a shame to waste all that stuff. Then I had a brainwave – we could make stuffies. I’ve been having a lot of fun making samples for inspiration, and the idea seems to be catching on. Unfortunately my camera has been acting up and I don’t yet have any photos.

    Quilting can use up little scraps. Or catnip pillows for cats.
