The veteran quilt sew-ins are taking on a new identity. Ann wanted to expand our reach so she visited a local nursing home to see if they had any need or interest and she was welcomed with open arms. Our monthly sew-in’s will now include quilts for the residents, walker totes and adult bibs.
As a bonus, Linda, who volunteers as a second-hand store came armed with terry cloth bibs all cut out. The store wasn’t interested in keeping them for the shelves and they were happy to let Linda bring them to our group!
Ann’s last quilt top is still waiting for me to quilt it, so she got busy using my serger to finish off the edges of the bibs:
Linda got busy marking and chain-stitching her next veteran quilt:
Mary and Bonnie (somehow missed getting a picture of Bonnie 🙁 )both continued with their strip piecing:
And I was able to get this top pieced:
Ann testing the size of the adult bibs:
Look for more projects in future months.
