May Work Day

May 11th saw some sixteen Hope Quilters working on our varied projects.  Here is the pictorial view of the work being done by this busy group of quilters.
Show and tell quilts:

Hope Quilters are also making small pillow cases for breast cancer and other medical needs.  Shown are some kits that have been made up, ready to be sewn.  These pillows can be requested through Hope's Care Ministry.

The Okoboji project is nearing completion.
Quilters busy with new projects.  We help each other learn new techniques, new patterns and blocks.

Learning how to cut some new blocks using a triangle tool.
Here's a Ghana Altar Cloth
It has been made so either side can be used on the altar.
We're planning a Saturday Sewing Day soon to use the rest of the Ghana fabrics
to make more of these 84" X 72" altar cloths for the new churches in Ghana.
If you would like to help sew these altar cloths, please contact Hope Quilters.
We are not "quilting" these, but they will have a backing fabric.  Some may be
double-sided as this one below, others will have a plain, solid back.

  1. I sure enjoy seeing everything you're working on, and definitely wish I could be there to help! As it relates to Ghana quilts... were you able to use the hand-embroidered blocks I sent to you? And do you want more of them? I am glad to continue hand-stitching if those blocks will be used. Please let me know.

    Thank you for the breast cancer pillow that Kim Oglemade for me. It was special, and well-used, following my lumpectomy, and during radiation treatments. Those pillowe are wonderful for those who must go through breast cancer. Bless you all for what you're doing in the name of our dear Lord Jesus Christ.
