WE HEADED OFF...

... to Congleton Quilt Group last night. Our Glorious Leader has been given  a HUGE amount of fabric .. lots of it samples .. and we are to make up quilt tops ... these are then to be bagged out with fleece and in September they are going to be donated to the Salvation Army as covers for homeless persons. There were 6 tables ... and we had 1.5  hours ... GO!!!

Our table had 2 cutters of fabric... 1 pinner of fabric .... 1 sewer of fabric... and ME on the iron!! We managed 2 completed tops...



and we also managed "part" of another one ... our sewer (Gwen x) has taken it home to finish x MOST tables managed a similar total .. with most tables having someone taking home a top to finish x  .... and then there was ... THE ARTISTIC TABLE!!!

Now bearing mind WHO these quilts/covers will be donated to .. and maybe it is just me ...and about 98% of the rest of those present ... BUT does it really need diamond blocks and blocks made from 2 inch strips?!!! They managed to make some blocks!! Good job it takes ALL kinds !! LOL xx  

I am off to choose fabrics for my next swoon blocks .. hope to get to them tomorrow x

Wow, two and half quilts in one and half hours!! That is some feat, and what a good cause :)

That all sounds such good fun and all for a good cause too.
As I'm a new follower, I didn't realise until now that you belonged to Congleton quilt group. I belong to Millenium Quilters in West Derby, Liverpool and we recently met some lovely ladies from your group at the Gresford show. Please give out a big "Hello" from us at your next meeting.
Best wishes
Jo

Sorry but I am probably in the 2 percent that believes they deserve a quilt that brings a smile as well as warmth. I think what you did was wonderful but quantity is not all that matters from my perspective the love should shine thru, too. Xxoo

Well done to make the 2 and a half quilt tops, takes all kinds as you say, so long as all the quilt tops are finished!

The homeless people I deliver rice balls to don't have anything this fancy. Good for you!

Janet said...

You must feel a good sense of accomplishment :) And yes it takes all kinds... I would probably end up in that artistic group. :)

You all did a great job, getting through all those quilts in such a short time! To each his own is what I say .

Josie said...

Great teamwork! Why am I thinking of the Keystone Cops? You must have been working at breakneck speed to accomplish so much in such a short time. More power to your elbow... it's a great cause. ...xxx
