Ladies of the Thread – Port Orchard, WA

I received the following email and photos from Vicki who is working with her group making and donating quilts. I just love how bright and happy this string quilt is.

Finally, here is a photo of the strip quilt made by our group, Ladies of the Thread, in Port Orchard, WA. We meet at a local church on two Wednesdays per month to make quilts for Project Linus. I’ve also included pics of other Linus quilts made by group members using the Quick Strippie pattern on your website.

We also make quilts for area coroners. The quilts are carried in their vans and used to pick up babies and children (instead of body bags), such a sad thing. The coroners say it eases the parents just a bit to see their child in a quilt and oftentimes the quilt goes on with the child, so we re-supply them as needed.

Best regards,
Vicki Chang

    LOVE this string quilt. Hadn’t thought to use something that wasn’t a tone-on-tone for the centre string. Works beautifully :)

    I just spent some time looking through your blog, it’s great! Our guild makes lots of quilts to donate (as a group and individually) and I got lots of ideas. Thanks so much!

    I just moved here to Olalla from California and am looking for a quilting group. Are you open to new members or know of any other quilting groups that meet in this area? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
