Charity Quilt Update - Great Job!!

Have you noticed that magic happens when we quilt? I've seen it happened again just since January 1. First there were Muriel Radcliff's two child-sized quilts. Then there was our work night with George's 22 quilts and Jan Koehn's bright "Attic Window." We had three quilts from late December, two preemies by Delores Jenisch and a purple beauty made by Shirley Hughes, which we have added to the count.

In February we took in several more quilts, including a pink and green four-block, (with a touch of purple) from Shirley Hughes; a stunning "Slanted Star" scrappy on white done by Kathy Krieg; a lap-size purple beauty pieced by "Annie Anonymous," quilted by Barb Barrow, and bound by Martha Hunter; and an original design by Cindy Johnson done in blues, browns, and greens. Suzie Evenstad's friend, Marilyn Walters, stitched six tops for us, using up some precut blocks from our stash. Three bags of fabric stash were donated, to be used by us or passed along, and Sharon Neidigh donated a small sized pieced top.

Please enjoy these January and February Charity Quilts Project photos.
You can also enjoy seeing theses quilts on display at the Gilbert Historical Museum Quilt Show, from March 1 through May 31. The museum is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 9:00 to 4:00. Our members who donated these Charity Quilts have agreed to show them in a group theme display to encourage other quilters to participate in the making and giving of comfort quilts for needy folks through an organization of their choice. The display includes a short description of Nimble Thimbles.
