Sunday was another example of how the KC MQG has changed my life. Three of my new guild friends, Camille, Darcy, and Melissa, gave up their Sunday afternoon to come all the way out to my house (not a small task in itself) to help me prepare the kits for the fetal demise pouches that our guild is making as our service project. We cut a LOT of fabric and ribbon!We have kits to distribute at Thursday's meeting and soon these will be finished pouches to deliver to the hospital.It's great to have more than just me working in the studio. I had to clean before they came. In that process I was looking at a stack of quilts folded in the corner. I asked myself why I was holding onto them when they could be being used by someone who needed them. So I packed the whole stack in a box to send to Victoria's project. I've sent quilts before and it seemed a much better place for these quilts to be than gathering dust in my studio. I can't say I won't miss them just a bit.
If you happen to have a quilt or two that you're not using, there are some needy families that could use them. Check out Victoria's project, Bumble Beans Basics.
