Comfort Quilts top 1,600

Carol and Judy discuss the next step for a quilt.
Today was Gig Harbor Comfort Quilt day, when volunteers come together at our local quilt shop to work on quilts for breast cancer patients. It's always a fun day, full of talking and laughing and sewing.


Carol (above left), who started the project, said the group has now donated about 1,650 quilts to area patients! Here are just a few quilt tops from today. If you're interested in helping, stop by Nancy's Quilt Shop on Pioneer the fourth Wednesday of the month anytime between 10 and 4. You can bring your machine and piece or just hand sew labels, cut, or iron.


When we reached quilt 1,000, we had a party
and I blogged about it here:


   


Have a colorful day

The last one reminds me of another quilt you made with a white background and jewel tones.

Julia, you're thinking of my Jewel Box block quilt. I'm surprised you remember it!
