Eye Candy!

Yesterday was our guild meeting.  I always come away so pumped and full of inspiration.  We have some absolutely amazing quilters in our group who are so sharing, positive and upbeat.  I soooo look forward to the third Wednesday of every month which is when we meet.

The highlight of yesterday’s meeting was the reveal of 12 charity quilts made by the combined efforts of many of our members.  There is a new local hospice opening in the Fall of this year and it is our goal to have a hand made quilt for each of the 18 beds.  To date, 12 have been completed and more are in the works.

DSCN0448By the time I remembered to take my camera out, these had already been shown.

DSCN0447 We have several longarm quilters in our group who have donated their time and materials to finish these quilts.

DSCN0449The machine quilting is absolutely stunning, and most of the quilts are custom quilted.

DSCN0450Even as I type this, I’m still amazed at the work and beauty.

Happy stitching!
