Six is Enough least, for now.  Quilt tops for refugees, that is.  Believe it or not I found still more fabric -- appropriate fabric -- this morning, while digging through yet another drawer for enough to put in a border.

I have to face it: there is enough and then some.  Not just fat quarters, either.  Entire chunks.

But these finished ones (5 + 1 that needs its outer border) still have to be quilted, and I have a piece to do for 15 x 15, and a dyeing class (online) that starts Jan. 7 (I think)...

So.  Six it will be, and then a break, and make some more.

#4 - "Off the Rails" - finished

#5 - Smaller -- a disappearing 4-patch.
WIP this morning, finished this afternoon
Photo to come eventually

#6 - Also quite small -- pure scrappy 4-patch.
Photo above taken this a.m.;
 the centre is now together,
and a narrow border has been applied.
Another border and photos to come...

Linking up with WIP Wednesday on The Needle and Thread Network -- and wishing all of you, Gentle Readers, a healthy, creative and very Happy New Year!

P.S. Mark on the Body has been updated to December can read it HERE.  :-)

Wonderful Margaret. You have done your part. People will be very happy with your quilts.

Thank you so much, Margaret, for continuing to post this well loved blog ... I always enjoy reading about what you've been up to, learning how busy and helpful to others you are, and the route your learning journey takes you. Your blog allows us to maintain friendships across the miles ... isn't it great to feel truly Canadian, once more?

I'm going to tag along with your Syrian refugee quilt idea. Simple sewing, quick projects, welcoming warmth to our new citizens. I may be unable to adopt a family, but I can certainly help in many other ways. Thank you for initiating this ... perhaps others will help, too.

I hope this coming year brings more health, happiness and creative energy your way. You are such an inspiration for me, and many others ... thank you for just being you.

All the very best in 2016,

You always seem to accomplish so much. The quilts and your generosity are both wonderful.
