Today was our quilt guild’s We Care Workshop. We had 29 guild members in attendance and a total of 35 quilts were worked on. These quilts will go a long way to filling the need in our communities’ hospitals, long term care homes, and women’s shelters.
The We Care Committee did an excellent job in securing an excellent facility. We each had our own table to set up our machines. We worked in pairs to share irons and cutting boards. Everyone had plenty of room. The committee prepared kits for several different quilt patterns. All strips, backing, and batting had been pre-cut for you. Some kits even included pre-made binding! There were also samples of the quilts made up and attached to the wall so if you got stuck, you could quickly re-orient yourself by looking at one of the samples.
Almost everyone left with their quilt top basted and ready to quilt when they get got home. It will be wonderful to the see the “train” of quilts at the next guild meeting later this month!
When a large group gets together to work towards a common goal, it is amazing what can be accomplished! Many hands make light work!
