The guild is very involved in philanthropic efforts; they make quilts for kids with cancer, quilts for babies born while their fathers are overseas, quilts for a special children's camp. Friends, they make and donate quilts to just about any cause that asks. They have a special subgroup that works on these projects, and that subgroup meets during the day, which is when I work. So I'm not able to attend. At the last meeting I attended, I asked for a take-home project and was given nine bright and cheerful blocks, a hunk of plaid backing fabric and some strips of black with nice bright dots and asked to put it all together.
I opined that all that black needed to be broken up and added the small green squares. Once I got it all together, I tied it with red Perle and am in the process of binding it. This isn't my usual kind of a project, but it gives me a ways to participate in a part of the guild I really admire.
I've got a couple of other things going on, like reporting on the past few days and sharing the picked number for the give-away, but that is going to have to wait another couple of days. I hope you'll come back to see!
