Gift Of Fabric

Quilts From The Bluffs receives gifts of fabric and scraps, which is so generous of people.  I took these bags home to help sort and get ready for use.  ( I now have renewed respect for our Leader, Jeanine.  It's a lot of work to sort all that out.)

There were 2 bags of strings, scrap and some larger pieces.  The larger pieces were sorted out one evening at Charmed For Charity and cut into 5 inch squares.  The 2 bags of strings and scraps came home with me.  Plus, we had 2 bags of Christmas fabric.  I sorted out the large pieces of Christmas fabric as we can use those for backing for the Charmed For Charity quilts.

On January 23, 2015, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm we are starting a Quilt Marathon,  It will continue the next day, January 24 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  Food will be provide for all that come out to help. We will be making the charm quilts using 99 five inch squares.  They go together fast, so we're hoping to get a jump start on quilts for 2015.  Last year we delivered a total of 401 quilts.  Jeanine is hoping we can make the 500 mark this year.  That would be amazing.  So come on out and help.  We'd love to see you!
