Sew Day for American Hero Quilts
Our quilt group hosted a Sew Day for American Hero Quilts. We wish the 10,000 quilts already given to injured military were enough. But more quilts are needed. (Isn't war a really bad idea? Don't you wish we solved our differences peacefully?)
We met at the Happy Valley Grange after a flood at the church building meant carpet and floor replacement. Thank You Grange, for helping us out at the last minute!!!
We brought some blocks...
And lots of fabric too...
... and then we got to work!
Non-sewers helped with ironing and cutting. I think we had 21 of us working at whatever needed to be done.
We loved the doctor's office lamp Marsha brought with her! :D
We layed out our quilts on the design floor...
This happy quilt includes the blocks Debbie from Tennessee mailed to me! THANK YOU Debbie!!!
We had a great time sharing a meal and working together. It's a lot of work to haul everything someplace to sew as a group, but we all agreed it was a WONDERFUL day!!
I'll post again when we have all the tops completed.
