I hope someone else can post my latest 2 quilts.  These are for the CHP officers' trunks, to give comfort when it is needed.

Gimpy, thank you for posting them.

As it turns out, someone with a key to the guild's room at our fairgrounds says we have at least 6 kid comfort quilts on hand, My BFF says she has about as many tops at her place. Besides the 2 above, I finished one top today and am well on the way to doing a second, so we are in good shape.

Cute. The Care Bear is a great idea for an easy baby or charity quilt.

Of course I am sad that there is a need, but I am joyfully working for the comfort of children under stress.  My BFF delivered a stack of quilts here today.  I will be delivering, therefore, 11 more comfort quilts to the cop shop tomorrow and another 2 on Friday.  Most of these are left from a stash to serve forest fire victims.  My guild sisters work so that there will always be comfort quilts available for local needs.  The Care Bear quilt had the front and back of the bear appliqued when I got the fabric.  I felt that it was a bit plain, so I cut off the edges and reversed the borders.  I like the results.

I am doing the same pattern as the racing cars/Spidey quilt later this week, with tropical fish. I'll probably put Spiderman on the back of that one too.

I got 2 more tops finished today.  One was waiting in one of my scrap bins for me to add a border.  The other was a simple star I started yesterday.

Someone please bring forward from my album.   I made 2 others which my protégé took home to press for me a couple of days ago.  Those are both scrappies.
