Wrapping up

The Maine sew-in is over and as usual very successful. We ended up with a stack of finished quilts and pillowcases and many others are in process. We’ll meet again in September and finish up even more.

Bev, who coordinates the sew-in every year worked on pillowcases for Operation Military Kids to be donated through the Legion Auxiliary. She completed this stack and prepped another larger stack for sewing.

Maine sew-in

We started working today and will continue though the weekend. Shannon Fabrics donated two large bolts of their minky Cuddle fabric and I can’t tell you how soft, warm, and cozy the HeartStrings quilts we’re backing with it are turning out!
