December 2016

We just had a marathon and yet the group continued to produce more amazing quilt tops!  The database indicates that even without the marathon our group made over 100 quilt tops!   Stop by the awards tab on the blog and see what the end result looks like…. the joy, gratitude and love in the eyes of the recipients, families, and presenters is why we are compelled to do what we do.

Marathon 2016 was a great success!

About 60 people were sewing away creating tops for Quilts of Valor!   We had kits available for those who wanted them,  there were door prices, raffle baskets, lunch, 2 award presentations, lots of laughs, sharing and a true sense of a community wanting to say thank you to service members for their hard work and sacrifice for our great nation.

Here are some pictures of the day….   If you go to the Awards tab you will see what’s been going on in November….it’s been a busy, busy month.

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.
