Quilting Bee - the results

After two days of quilting the numbers are in. 20 quilts pieced, tied and sewn together. These quilts have been donated to Lutheran World Relief to be given to people in need of warm sturdy quilts for shelter and warmth.

A small group of 7 ladies from my church got together to work on this project. I was very happy that we were able to get 20 quilts done. We still have lots of fabric left over and plan another quilting bee in the next few months.

The quilts are definitely colorful (no designer fabrics here) just plenty of old sheets and scraps of cloth but meet the criteria of warm and sturdy. We used old blankets and flannel sheets to line the quilts and crochet cotton to tie them.
