Yesterday's Sew-In

Weather outside was VERY hot but we managed to get a lot accomplished yesterday. ok, you wanted to know how many quilts, etc. I came home with 6 completed tops (quilted, labeled, bound and in the pillowcases); 10 tops (now these included ones that were dropped off completed at home as well; and 6 needing labels! Not bad, huh!

Oh, and we had a QOV presentation as well. Chris and her mother stopped in to pick up quilts for her nephews who are returning home for a family reunion at the end of the month. Sgt. Zachary Knud Klingberg was with the First Marine Division, Fox Company 2/5; and was involved the the initial invasion in Iraq in 2003. He is now with the Army - 314MP Company out of Irvine, Calif.

His brother, PO Drew Leif Klingberg is with the Coast Guard, PSU 311 (Port Security Unit) out of Long Beach, Calif.

BIG thank you for the donations brought in with the signature squares. Headed out this weekend to pick up some much needed fabric for backings. Thank you to those who volunteered to help man the tables at the Farmers Market. And thank you to all who took quilts that needed binding...whewwww

Thank you for your dedication in this mission. If you're in the area of the Aurora Depot on Rt 25 Saturday, the first of this year Farmers Market...stop by and say hello! It would be nice for the people to see the faces of our quilters.
PS... don't forget the sew-in in Winfield on June 25th. Also, let me know if you're headed to the Northern Illinois Quilt Fest. Stop in to meet Catherine Roberts, the founder of Quilts of Valor.
