Quilts of Valor

I had so much fun yesterday!  I got to quilt, be with friends, enjoy snacks and lunch all while donating to a worthy cause.  You see, I sewed in a Quilts of Valor Marathon.  The goal is to make 100 quilts in basically 6 days of group work.  When I left, they had 115 quilt tops sewn with most of them having backs and binding made.  In addition, volunteers were also making pillow cases that the quilts will be donated in.  It was so well organized.  Thanks Joy and Susie for all the prep work to make this such a successful event.  Here I am playing working on the quilt.

This is the quilt top that me and my friend Debra made.  We also made the backing and binding.  With precutting of the fabrics, we were able to finish the work in about 5 hours.  Please consider donating a quilt to such a worthy organization.

Next week, Thursday through Saturday, the long armers are going to Gammill headquarters in West Plains, MO.  If you'd like to volunteer to quilt quilts, visit Amazing Graceful Stitches.
