It’s been a sew filled eleven months. Typically I don’t get a lot done in December, but I’m going to try to get a few things down the road.
Before being donated, I usually hang all the Hospice quilts I have outside for a pic, but days of rain, rain, rain, prohibited me from doing that. Instead, I laid them out in groups on the floor. I love seeing all the color and imagining the comfort and joy they will bring!
And then, about a week ago the Hospice quilts were taken to Fairview Church to be dedicated. They just looked so beautiful. The pastor had a wonderful sermon tied into the dedication (not many dry eyes in the church when he was done) and then the congregation prayed over the quilts. Next week they will all be delivered to the local Hospice office and soon be given to various patients.
My thanks to the so many who contributed to this effort: Quilters at my retreats who put blocks together, blog readers who send blocks, flimsy quilt tops and completed quilts, and local quilters who donate flimsy quilt tops and completed quilts.
This wonderful process will begin again in 2019! And now for my November progress listing:
