Welcome Summer!

The season of Summer is in full swing
here in Utah. Hot days...cooler nights...
gardening...Husband home fulltime
(he's a teacher)

I finished a quilt top for my local guild
comfort quilt donation. I had planned to
donate 4 quilts this year, so I am a bit
behind.


Sorry the photo is not of great quality. It is made
of scraps, scraps and more scraps. I have
another 30 blocks made, so a similar quilt
will be my next donation. Our quilts go to
Safe Harbor (women-children shelter) and
the local Police department.

Last week, my Husband and I
attended the Panguitch (Utah) Quilt Walk.
It is a weekend festival about quilts
and how they saved a town.
Google it...it's an amazing story.

All throughout the town of Panguitch,
they have quilts displayed....
probably about 30 quilts.



They also have a statue in a
little park to commemorate the
sacrifice of the 7 men who saved
the town with their quilts.

Today, for my Sunday Slow stitch, I am
hoping to finish the binding on a quilt
that will be a Christmas gift.

What are you stitching?

I had to research that story of the quilt walk... how fabulous!
And what a huge event to honour the story!
Enjoy your stitching today!

Cute little scrap quilt. It looks like a quick way to use up a lot of scraps.
