Saturday we tied all of our humanitarian quilts.

It was refreshing and recharging to be around so many fun women chatting and serving….not to mention all of these fabulous quilts!!!

We finished about 60 quilts Saturday….and sent loads home with volunteers to tie at home.  These were just a handful of them.

These will all be sent to those in need from the recent natural disasters.  Thank you again to all of you who sent me fabric….each and every piece went into quilt.   So THANK YOU for helping us make these quilts possible!!!

I can't tell you how incredibly humbling it is to know that so many women can come together and make wonderful things happen. What a joy, to be pouring so much love and attention into a quilt that will bring a life long amount of love and comfort to whomever recieves it. Blessings BIG xxx

okay, this totally looks like my cultural hall last year. Good to know that even if I leave Utah, the humanitarian quilting still continues. Nicely done, gotta love RS. (Seriously, this really does look like my cultural hall in Provo. I had to do a double-take, hee hee)

It is so great to have a community making quilts with love for a community that will be needing the love. Sort of a "bank account"!

We are planning on tying two or three this fall with our group of 10 year old achievment day girls :) It should be a lot of fun and two of us are both fabric hogs, so we should have quite a fun variety :) Great job ladies!
