Quilts for Charity

Our quilts are made up of 8"X9" blocks, 7 across and 11 down and they are tied. Our group makes about 500 a year. They are blessed and given to needy children.

Here are three quilt tops folded on my table.

This one is at the quilting bee, being pinned for final sewing.

Flag quilt for 9-11

I made this quilt for the "Piecemakers" quilting for charity. Here it is on my loveseat.

The other members ironed it and added batting and a back and tied the quilt.

All the members quickly finished the quilt and show it to the Pastor. (Our Saviour Lutheran Church)

It is now proudly hanging in the church, ready for Labor Day and 9-11.
