At the March guild meeting last night, some of us turned in our Project Night Night quilts. A month or so ago, a group of members cut fabrics into 5" squares and grouped them for distribution. Those who participated received a packet of 36 squares; we were to assemble, add borders, quilt and bind. I chose to add seven bright orange squares to mine so it would be a little bigger.
Ordinarily I would reach for girly sorts of fabrics, but this time I took the packet that had the minions in it. It was a lot of fun putting this together and gave me a chance to practice my machine quilting.
Project Night Night serves homeless individuals and provides for little ones a tote bag that contains a blankie, a stuffed animal, and a book. If you think you or your group might want to get involved in helping this worthwhile organization, you can read about it here.
