Fasturn and charity quilts

I just released a DVD of “A Quilter’s Touch” cable access tv show demonstrating the use of Fasturn, a tube turning system. I used this system to turn a tube which I sewed onto a placemat to donate to Meals on Wheels. There are so many uses for this tube turning system! My head was turning as I was taping the show. There will surely be a part two to using this system. Stay tuned….

I also showed how I create eye shades for the neonatal unit at UMass Memorial hospital. These shades are needed in many hospitals to shade babies eyes from the bright lights.

The final charity item I showed was a comfort quilt. A guild member started this quilt. I quilted the three layers together and will now pass it on to the next person who will square it up and bind it. Then it gets a label and a new owner to comfort. It is so good for our souls to work together on charity projects.

My hope is that this DVD will inspire you to think of a charity in need of your quilting gifts and sew up a storm. Happy quilting! Continue reading
