Working with the quilt ministry, making quilts for Project Linus and the other local Services, is so rewarding!

Sewing away!
Monday night a group of about 6 of us added labels to quilts that Quilts From The Bluffs had made.  Since last October, we have made another 153 quilts for Project Linus,  21 for Children's Square USA and 23 for Open Door Mission.  That's a lot of quilts!

Quilts in Jeanine's guest bedroom, waiting for labels.

 More quilts!

All labeled and ready to go to Project Linus this Saturday.

It is amazing to see all these quilts.  We have such talent in our group.  Thank you Ladies!!

Another Finish

I have another finish.  We had a Quilt Marathon on January 23 and 24 and finished about 30 some quilts, from start to finish.  Amazing ladies!  If you follow the link, you will see more quilts.

My sister Deb came to the Marathon and started a quilt but because of her chemo, ran out of energy.  So I helped her finish sewing the rows and took it home to quilt it.  Finished the binding at Quilt Day yesterday.  Love how she place the blue and black squares on the side.

We had such a good time on those 2 days.  Lots of new friendships were formed and old ones strengthened. After all, isn't that what quilting is all about?

Oh my goodness!  Have we had a the SNOW!  We went to Iowa City this past weekend and got snowed in.  But it was a beautiful snow.

Through the windshield of the car, so amazing.  The roads were still pretty slick at the start of our journey.  And once we were on the Interstate, I couldn't believe the number of cars in the ditch or median.  I counted 171 vehicles.  Prayers were said for the people involved.

Now, on Wednesday, we have another storm and no work for me!  I'll be sewing, see you later!
