Happy Halloween wall hanging. This is my project for "A Lovely Year of Finishes" (Sept).

And last, but not least, I want to remind you that I am working on charity quilts,
and I would love your help!! 
Quilts are for a quilt drive to help the kids in the DC General Homeless Shelter. 
And you can help me by donating orphan blocks, partial blocks, or fabric (scraps, strips, leftover, uglies, whatever). 
If you are willing to mail them to me, I could use them to make more quilts for these kids!!! 
If you are up for a loving donation, please send me an email at tweloq[_at_]gmail[dot_com] or leave a comment here with your email address so I could give you my mailing address. I promise that your donation will be used to make some kids happy and feel more loved!! 

I am happy to report that I received a great donation from Gigi! 

Orphan blocks that are going to find their ways into future charity quilts!

And I already used some of last week donation: I cut some of the fabric in 10 inches square and tried another of Jean's block from a video tutorial!

After making those blocks I couldn't stop and I pieced together another top (the first toddler size)!

 about 40''x60''
(I know, the piece needs ironing ;) )

I really like using these big prints as they make a full quilt top come together super fast!!

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!
