I finished the summer sunshine quilt top. I wasn’t going to put a picture up until it was done but wanted to show the ladies in the guild that helped make the blocks what the top looks like. I am going to piece a backing for it this weekend and hopefully get it quilted in the next couple of weeks.
I am currently quilting a red/white and blue charity quilt for the guild. Once that’s complete I need to do a couple of customer quilts and then hopefully this one.
I received a call from one of our local quilt shops yesterday. They had heard about the hospice house quilt project through a lady in our guild. Several ladies in the shop overheard and wanted to make quilts for the project so the shop is going to put it in their email newsletter and collect finished quilt and quilt tops at their shop. The shop owner has even volunteered to quilt the tops her customers drop off.
Everyone I have talked to about the project that has had personal contact with Hospice has had a great experience with all the staff and volunteers and can’t imagine how they would have got through such terrible times without their assistance.
