I think I need help....

   Santa's elves at the Greenville Woodworkers Guild have been so busy making toys for several charitable organizations......see all those doll cradles.  Well, I found out there are doll strollers and doll beds also in need of "covers".  Covers?  That's what a southern woodworker calls a quilt!
   I have 3 done and 2 more pieced, and batting cut for about 8 more.  What was I thinking?  I gave up my Wonder Woman suit a while back, and this was a big project to fulfill by the first week in December.  That's when they begin distributing the toys......... over 50 doll beds, cradles, and strollers....Yikes.
 And it is hard to have a quilt for some, but not enough for each one.  
   And then an angel appeared.  She sent me an email to offer to help make a few tops for the doll quilts.  Freda, the imperamanga,  gave me the nudge to ask for help in blogland.  And before I could get this posted, a second angel arrived with a similar offer.  Cheree at The Morning Latte  wants to make a few too.  Ladies, you are so special. 
Here's what I need:
 One top for a doll quilt---size 12" by 18" for the cradles, and size 14" by 18" for the doll beds. 
   So I am asking for tops---string pieced or made from orphan blocks are just perfect--- that I will finish with batting and backing--no binding--just a plain edge.  If you want to send a finished one, that would be wonderful, but not expected.  
  Leave me a comment and I will send you snail mail info.  Encouragement is always welcomed.  And pop over to thank Freda and Cheree, too, for me. 
  Thank you , Lord, for scraps.  They keep me  humble and pieceful.

  2. I can't make too many, but I'll be delighted to make a few. Do you need extra batting too? I don't throw away the smaller pieces and probably have some that will be a good fit for these "covers".
