Many Hands Make…

Many quilt blocks! At each retreat, each person receives pieces of fabric and a block pattern and has the opportunity to make a block that will go int0 a charity quilt. This year the fabric and pattern made two hourglass blocks. This activity is totally optional, but since there is a drawing for a great prize, everyone participates. I truly believe that even if there wasn’t the possibility of a prize, they would all sew a block. The generosity of quilters has no bounds!! There was enough of one color to make a child quilt. This top will go to our guild’s fearless charity quilt leader who will quilt it, return it to me, and I will bind it.

And there’s more – enough for a lap quilt! I’m attending a workshop for a few days and during my free time will piece these blocks together.

I love that while we are treating ourselves to time away, concentrated sewing time, and so much fun, we are doing something special for others. What a great way to share our talents! And this year there is a second opportunity to join in on the fun at the Quilt & Sew-In, November 10-13, 2016. Sign-ups have begun, so secure your place for fun today!

Although the list has grown, I do continue to make progress on my projects. Hopefully my next project update will be reduced in numbers. But…I’m still having fun!
