Comfort Quilts

A number of quilters met on Tuesday, Mar. 25 to work on Comfort Quilts.  There was a lot of sorting and folding going on.
Linda and Elizabeth organized the fabric into bins in order to have an organized way to use the pieces in the future.
Sandra brought her felting machine and used it to put together pieces of batting.  This was a fast and easy way to use up the smaller pieces.  Thanks, Sandra!
Then the ladies started the sandwiching process.
And Jane was busy cutting pieces for more kits.
All that work was followed by a delicious lunch of soup and trimmings.

A Big Thanks To Elizabeth

The time has come for Elizabeth to pass along her duties as blog mistress for GCQ. We are grateful to her for bringing us into the 21st century by starting this blog and I hope to do as great a job as she has. Elizabeth has always been very generous with her support to the guild by volunteering in many capacities over the years and GCQ has been truly blessed to have her as a member. You can still keep up with Elizabeth's quilting talents over at Elizabeth's blog, so be sure to visit her after you check out the latest happenings at GCQ.
