check that one off the list!

Today I put the final stitches into our Presbyterian Women's quilt! I even got the sleeve sewn on the back so we are ready to hang in on the wall of the church for Easter. So many stories in this quilt! So many different ladies, all ages and stages of life. It's amazing what you can learn about another lady while you are gathered around a table coloring!
It took us more than a year to complete (ok, my fault mostly) but now it can hang in the church forever, spreading our stories with future generations.

During a recent workday at the church, 2 more quilts were discovered. One is from the ladies Biblestudy group but has no date on it... I don't remember it being made so it must be at least 8 years old. The other was made by some of the churches first preschool groups & is dated 1987! So amazing to think that the little hands that drew the pictures on that quilt are now adults, possibly with little people of their own!

I have put hanging sleeves on both of those quilts too, so they can all hang together! Now on to finish some more projects...
