Raffle Quilts

These beautiful quilts, destined to be raffled, were put on display at the meeting today.
This is a little of their story.

Some time back, Judy, one of the groups long time members, feeling that she would not be able to finish the task of turning so many hexagons into a quilt, donated two bags of hexagons to the group.

They languished in the storeroom for awhile, until a couple of intrepid souls decided these hexagons just had to be turned into a quilt.

Volunteers were called for and hexagons dispatched.

Eventually Grandmothers Flower garden blocks returned, with only a few hexagons left out in the cold.

They then set off on the next step of their journey, going home with Sue, the workshop coordinator who shuffled and played and came up with the finished layout, 11 rows of flowers that she stapled together - yes stapled - and no I don't know quite how she managed that, but stapled they were.

And so off on another stage of the journey, more volunteers to stitch the blocks into rows, the rows together, the border to be attached and then this very interesting top needed to be turned into a quilt, and you all know the work involved in that.

Meanwhile, you remember those few hexagons that were left out in the cold? Cold no more, Sue was very busy, turning them along with some suffolk puffs and creative embroidery into a very pretty purple and green striped quilt.

And so the group has two wonderful quilts to raffle.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but
instead of that, this is excellent blog. A great read.

I will certainly be back.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and
tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just
so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a
few of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

I am new to developing web sites and I was wondering if having your website
title relevant to your content really that critical?
I notice your title, "Blogger: BUDERIM PATCHWORK " does seem to be spot on with what your website is about yet, I prefer
to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding.
Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be
greatly valued.
