52 Charity Quilts in 52 Weeks - September

Sunday, September 30, 2018

This month, I added binding to five charity baby quilts. It feels so good to move some quilts from the WIP pile to the DONE pile!

I'm making 52 quilts for charity this year. You can read more about my plan on this post. I recap my sewing progress on the last day of each month, and host a linky party where you can link up any charity sewing you've done too!


I quilted these five baby quilts a couple months ago after getting my longarm.

This month, I spent a couple hours adding the binding.

I machine stitched the binding on (as I do all my quilts).

The quilting is all 50wt Aurifil in #2324 Stone. I used the same thread to sew on the binding. (When first stitching the binding to the front of the quilt, I used up all different colors of 50wt thread that I had just a bit left on a bobbin. I emptied three different bobbins of various colors!)

Now my charity quilt count for the year looks like this:

8 finished Debbie Mumm baby quilts (3 here and 5 more today)
2 Debbie Mumm baby quilts that are quilted and awaiting binding
1 Debbie Mumm baby quilt top

My total charity quilt count for the year so far is 12. Just three months left in the year, and 40 quilts away from my goal. I think I can, I think I can.....

These five finishes bring my total quilt count (of all quilts I've made) for the year so far to 51! My charity quilt count seems a bit behind schedule, but my total quilt count is quite a bit ahead of where I was this time last year (I finished last year with 52 quilt finishes).

  6. That charity quilt count may be lower than you were aiming for, but it's still pretty high. And you've had a rather busy year, lol. I love seeing your progress :)
