Jena's Fabric Drive!

Jena, had a fabric drive for her Bat Mitzvah project to collect fabric for Quilts for Kids! What a sweetheart!! She delivered over 160 yards of 100% cotton fabric as well as some batting! Jena's admiration for Audrey Hepburn, inspired her to seek out a project that helped kids in need. The project brought together Jena’s desire to help kids and her interest in sewing and fashion design. Jena’s Bat Mitzvah was on June 3rd, 2017 at Temple Isaiah in Fulton, MD.
We were able to meet Jena and her mom on Saturday and hopefully they will be joining us at our August workshop. You are such a blessing to us Jena!!! We wouldn't be able to make quilts, quilted tote bags and pillowcases without the generosity of people like you!!

May Workshop

We had two great workshops this past week. We had a cutting workshop with Ellen M. and Cyndi on Wednesday. We used our donated Go Accuquilt fabric cutter and made 6 1/2" squares and 2 1/2" strips out of our smaller than 1/2 yard pieces. Thank you ladies!!!
On Saturday, Eileen, Sally, Diane and I worked on various projects (Diane and Eileen are not pictured here but we are so thankful for them!!!). Some finishing quilt tops, some working on foundation piecing and Rebecca dropped off several quilts. It was so good seeing everyone!!

Great rainy, cold day to be inside and sew with friends while making quilts (and things) for kids in need!!! Thank you for coming out Eileen, Sally, Benay, Dianne, Melinda, Kat and Rebecca!! Seven quilts, six pillowcases and two quilted tote bags were turned in today. Plus several quilt tops quilted and ready to be bound. Everyone was working on something different and some were learning new tips and tricks!

March Workshop

Yesterday we had our monthly workshop. We welcomed two new sweet ladies to our group, Trudy and her daughter Cindy! Trudy brought in two quilts she had finished (photos below) and they turned out beautifully!!
We got a lot accomplished yesterday as we were working on different projects. Trudy was at the cutting station helping to make more kits while Cindy was sewing a quilt top for the first time (I think we have her hooked)! Debbie was also working on a quilt top. Benay, Sally and I worked on the Crazy Quilt-as-you-go quilt top we started last month and Rebecca brought in several quilts she had quilted on her longarm. We missed those who couldn't make it and hope to see you next month!!
