Charity Quilt -Quilting Bee 2017

What. A. Day.

First I have to say these women are amazing.

We had very few repeaters from last year, so we literally were teaching from the beginning all over again.  We decided to use the simpler neon squares pattern that would allow us to show them also how to fussycut fun materials.  We had about 30 women, and 5 hours, and would you believe it?  We got 22 squares done (28 needed for a twin size quilt) - and almost everyone took home an extra square or more than one extra.  Since we do two twin quilts each year, we're nearly 1/2 way done!

Talk about teaching to fish.  I am humbled.

I feel so grateful to be able to do this each year.
