Oh my…..I am behind! March, April, May meetings….

So we have been having productive meetings….. I think we have made about 46 quilt tops so far in 2016!  There have also been a few awards since February and those photos will be in the Presentation tab.   This is a Marathon year so during meetings if you are not sewing you are helping to get quilt kits together!

February Meeting

So why is it that our meeting days are the sunniest of the week(month)?   Anyways….. as we cheerfully gathered on Monday: finished quilt tops were shown,  quilt tops were sewn, scraps were cut and sorted, and marathon kits were assembled!  It was great seeing everyone working individually and together towards a common cause.  Here are some photos of some completed tops and quiltsPhoto Feb 22, 9 39 00 AMPhoto Feb 22, 10 38 15 AMPhoto Feb 22, 11 03 03 AMPhoto Feb 22, 10 39 03 AMPhoto Feb 22, 9 20 00 AMPhoto Feb 22, 9 25 53 AMPhoto Feb 22, 10 58 53 AMPhoto Feb 22, 1 47 25 PM.

September Meeting Finishes!

At the 9/21 meeting we had lovely quilt tops turned in – we are now above 80 tops for the year.  Can you spot the 2.5″ challenge finish?   How about the orphan block quilts?   The tops are all beautiful and very much appreciated!

It’s summer and we have NOT been on vacation

Summer is winding down and the members of Southern Tier Quilts of Valor have continued to create wonderful quilts.   Our members have also been hard at work awarding quilts locally.    To view photos from our award presentations please go to the Awards tab.

Our group is committed to being excellent stewards of donations.   We don’t want to throw away anything that is usable.   We take scraps generated in the process of making quilts and turn them into 2.5″ squares, 5″ squares, 10″ squares, scrappy bindings, scraps for string block and last but not least dog bed fillers for our local shelters.  The trash bins at the end of our meetings do not have any fabric in them!

As a group we have been challenging ourselves this year to use 2.5 inch squares as well as orphan blocks that were accumulating!    It is so nice to have a group of talented quilters that rise to these challenges – look for some of the results in this post and in prior posts for 2015 as well.
