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.

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!

I tied …


The first one completed, more to follow!
