Anyone who is able to, makes a block or two. We almost always use the Jake's Heart block - in colors that the recipient likes. The blocks are sent to the person who has volunteered to put the top together - and there is a deadline for sending the blocks. After the top is assembled it is sent on to one of our fantastic machine quilters. Someone else buys the backing, or gives money to buy it, and after it is quilted another member binds it and then we find a convenient time and place to present the quilt - although two have had to be sent through the mail - which works too.
So let's see all the quilts we've made . . . in no particular order, as I've forgotten just when we presented each quilt.
Mary's daughter Beckie - this quilt was made in one afternoon, not long after Beckie's para sailing accident . . .
Housewarming quilt made by Loose Threads group when we bought our new house . . . made with my favorite fabrics, 30s reproductions . . .
It is such fun to make and give these quilts - they are always a surprise - just part of the fun of doing them. What a wonderful bunch of ladies in this group.
