Our handsewing group held its monthly meeting the other night and had a special guest. We had agreed that over the summer we would each try to make a donation quilt to give to Rebuilding Together in September. This picture shows the top of Honna's head and Rebuilding's representative, Kathy, holding a quilt that Honna and I worked on. The blocks, sashing, and backing fabric all were donated by dear Blogless Kathy, who sent them here from California. Rebuilding Together believes that everyone deserves to live in a home that is safe and healthy, and they work in low-income communities to make homes warm, safe, and dry. Our quilts speak to the "warm" aspect of the mission.
Marsha made this masterpiece from her scraps pile. We had fun looking at the patches to see what all was included, and Bonnie was particularly delighted to find a Monopoly money $500 bill! Of course you may click on any of the photos to enlarge.
Helen donated this terrific little baby quilt.
Generous Blogless Kathy sent the fixings for this quilt, too, and I put it together over the summer.
When this quilt was unfolded, everyone said, "Oh, Bonnie must have made that." And they were right. Each of the little dresses is hand-buttonhole stitched.
