We all worked on our own projects during the retreat, but there was plenty of time to put the finishing touches on some of our service project quilts for the county nursing home. I seem to be the collection point for everyone’s work, so I took advantage of a little sunshine this afternoon to photograph most of them.
Don’t start thinking this is all my work – it’s not! But isn’t it neat to see what happens when a couple of dozen quilters compile their scraps and a little time?
This stack of 17 quilts – plus a few more still being completed -- will go to the nursing home later this month. I’m looking forward to knowing that they’ll soon be exactly where they belong – not folded neatly in a colorful stack in my family room, but hopefully bringing a little warmth and cheer to folks who can really use just that.
