Comfort Quilt Sew Day Resumes

   Charity Quilts has been renamed “Comfort Quilts”.   We did not meet for a Sew Day in July and August but are resuming for September.  Sew Day will be Tuesday, Sept. 25th.   There are precut kits to work on if you bring a sewing machine or there will probably be tops ready for batting and backing to be cut.

     I have been working on a UFO from Kathy Houser.  I was using it for my leaders and enders. Now it is past that stage.  I had rows pinned on my design wall but my design wall is not large enough for all the rows.  So I spread them out on my kitchen “design floor” to see them all at once.  I’m glad I did because I noticed there were 2 rows that had the same fabric adjacent so I switched a couple. 

I have 18 rows that will finish at 57 by 72” and there is still a pile of pieces left, probably enough for another adult quilt.  I don't know when I will get to it because of my own UFOs so maybe someone else would like to try this pattern. 

     At our September general meeting we had a silent auction of hand made, baked and grown items as our guild fundraiser.  I was the lucky winner of an adorable stepstool made by Carol’s husband Dean.  I think my oldest granddaughter will be excited to use it.

There was a wide variety of items.  I believe the hottest items were a quilted purse and duffle bag made by Clara.   She showed them last month.
