Kids Quilts' Bee

A rainy Saturday proved to be a great quilty day for us. I think there were 10 of us over the day long who came to work a while. We pieced, pinned, batted, basted, quilted, pressed and bound all day.

Our drop in work day was a lot of fun and quite a few quilts were hurried along their way, nearly ready to be put in the arms of children in the care of our local Children's Aid Society.

We appreciate every bit of the effort that goes into making these beautiful quilts. Whether you help by donating fabric, quilting, binding, working on the piecing or assembling, it all helps us to give quilts to those children who are "in care" with practically nothing of their very own.

A special hurrah! to Mibsie who must be the Kids Quilts master piecer. I cannot even guess at how many tops she has cut, pieced and assembled for the kids -- all of which are bright and wonderful!

I hope the attendees enjoyed our quick serger quilt demo loosely based on Kaye Woods Six Hour Quilt and AM Jackson's NIN quick Quilt method. I bet these ladies will be saving all their trimmings now!
