Cutting Day!

Some of us from Ties that Bind Quilt Club in Slinger, WI, got together on Monday morning to cut fabric for charity quilts.  We were working from donated fabrics, squares, and orphan blocks.  Our fearless leaders are Colleen and Joan, who organize the dates and haul around the fabric among other duties.  Mary M. is working hard cutting squares for I Spy quilts, and Helen is figuring out what on earth to do with some printed geese squares (no worries, she came up with a good plan).  We wondered when we got done if we had even made a dent in the fabric, but we'll probably have several kits made in time for our regular March meeting.  Our group is small (about 35 members more or less) but very interested in helping the community and making quilts for others.  In addition to our regular charity work, several of our members sew for Ronald McDonald house, and make quilts for families of service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  Last year we donated at least 45 quilts to charity.  Quilters are known for sharing their gifts with others, but I think this group goes above and beyond.  Great job, ladies!
