Today was Comfort Quilt day, and we had unexpected sunshine coming through the windows to brighten up the quilts. That's Carol, above, who started the Gig Harbor Comfort Quilt Project. Under her leadership, about 1,080 quilts have been donated so far to local cancer patients. I blogged about it here when we reached 1,000 donations: http://sherriequilt.blogspot.com/2012/02/1000-comfort-quilts.html
Don't you love how Audrey's clothes and glasses go with the quilt she has on the design wall?
We sewed, cut, ironed and ate for an enjoyable morning and afternoon.
Here's my contribution ... I sewed two triangles on each of 90 beige blocks.
Nancy arranges some of her blocks on the design wall.
Here's a gorgeous orange and salmon quilt, ready to go to the cancer center where we hope it will brighten and warm someone's day.
Moving on to cherries:
Last Christmas, the Twisted Nut Stitchers (my little sewing group of five) exchanged friendship blocks that we made for each other. I gave each of them a piece of cherry fabric to use in my blocks, and now I'm turning them into a table runner to show at this year's Christmas meeting. I made each of them a house block with their fabric, so I made one for myself to put in the runner.
Last but not least: BUNNERS. Look at those furry little toes!
Have a colorful day
