Productive Day

My mini group (the Ducks) met today for a marathon piecing session. Our guild, the Cobblestone Quilters Guild, is making quilts for the families of the Charleston 9, the 9 firefighters that were killed in the line of duty on June 18th. Several members of our guild knew some of the fallen firefighters.

The guild plans to make more than just 9 quilts so that members of extended families will receive one. Today the morning Ducks managed to piece 5 tops. The evening Ducks will make a couple and a few other mini groups will make several. We will turn the quilts over to the fire chief and let him decide to distribute them.

It's amazing what can be accomplished with everyone pitches in.

It was a wonderful day!! I've never seen so many needles flying so fast. Every one of us deserves a day at a spa. Wouldn't that be great?
