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.
