Fun in a Funeral Home?

Last week a bunch of us spent the day working at the funeral home.  Did I say...funeral home?  Isn't that where most quilting bees take place?  A local funeral home is generous to let us use one of the family rooms to come sew.  It's a new facility, ground level, lots of tables, good lighting, kitchenette and quiet.  Linda  and I worked on this quilt.  It's made up of two blocks...she made a bunch of the one...I made the other ones.  Even tho these were mostly my donated fabrics, I probably wouldn't have put those bright golds in it...but what do I know...those same bright golds gave this quilt some pizzazzzz!  Break out of the box!!

Julie spent the morning sorting, pressing, sewing and pressing these binding pieces...all scrappy.  She deserves a medal!

Liz made these two pillowcases as Quilts of Valor are always given in a pillowcase.
Again, some of my donated fabric...made up nice!!  Various machine quilters will donate the quilting, someone will donate time binding them and then off they go!  Many hands made lots of work go quickly.  Jude and Ruth Green worked on piecing backs.  Thanks to Linda for setting up the day!
