Pacific Beach AHQ Sew Days

Cassie was a young helper who designed her first quilt block. Thank you for your help, Cassie!

We are having a great time sewing by the ocean. We had 20 people participate today and are looking forward to another productive day tomorrow. We finished two quilt tops from scratch, finished two that had been started previously, and have 9 quilts in progress. We even got bindings put on three quilts so they are totally ready to go. We will keep you posted on our progress tomorrow!

Quilt Delivery to Madigan

Last week I had the honor of delivering 100 American Hero Quilts to Madigan. Yes, 100 quilts can fit in an Impala but no passengers. It was a beautiful spring day for a ride on the ferry.

Julie brings out the laundry cart and all the quilts fit in it.

Judy and Julie took the filled cart into the hospital and quilts will be delivered to the wounded warriors. Notice the tree in bloom. It was a clear day and behind the covered walkway you could see Mt. Rainier.

This was my first solo trip to deliver quilts to Madigan. When I thought about how many people are part of making these quilts, it made it all the more special to make this delivery. I am glad to be part of this group.
