Today, our guild, Camden Quilt Guild, made their first blocks for Quilts of Valor. Wow! I thought folks would want to make one and move on to their own quilts...OH NO! Someone ran home and grabbed more muslin for the foundation and we ended up making 33 blocks! These ladies are awesome! It ended up being more of a "Quilts of Valor" sew in than anything.
We have quite a few members who are connected one way or another with a man or woman who is serving or has served in one or more branch of the armed services. We want to show our appreciation, and this is just one way that we can. The group plans to work on more quilts for QOV each month.
It was a busy, but productive and rewarding day. I'm unwinding now, listening to the sweet sounds of Rocker (our oldest Cocker Spaniel) snoring under the coffee table. (And I am listening to Pierce Brosnan singing to Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia...)
Sweet dreams of perfect seams!
