Wanna know something else about me?
I am a totally addicted to string quilts. SO, I make baby quilts for sweet little babies who are born in the USA while their daddies are deployed. I donate them to an organization called MOM4RMarines and also to Soldier's Angels.

I love 'em so much that I also have this blog totally dedicated to the making string quilts for donations. I invited a bunch of other wonderful quilting ladies to join me in this challenge. In January it will be one year old. We all post our progress and pictures.
