Quilting for Others

Quilting for others has been a significant aspect of the female involvement in the community for decades at least.
DH's grandmother talked about and showed me the quilts the Mission Society was making for the Indian School in Arizona in 1973.
A week of charity stitching has given me the opportunity to join the that illustrious group. A quilt pinned and ready for machine quilting. Windsor Community Quilts was gifted the center. My contribution is from the light border out. Members of the group helped with the pinning. A contemporary version of a "quilting bee".
Two more blocks for flood relief.
Check out the button on my side bar to be part of this international "quilting bee"

To all of you enjoy your weekend and the stitching you manage to do. Terry
