January 2014

Happy New Year quilters!  The weather finally warmed up a bit - just in time for Hope Quilters January work day.  The quilters brought some completed quilts and several quilt tops ready to be quilted.  More tote bags were completed and given to Care Ministry. 

Hope Quilters Retreats - watch for news about new quarterly quilt retreats - held at Hope.  We'll be able to use our Hope Quilters ironing boards, cutting mats, etc.  And - lots of room to spread out!  More to come about the dates and time when scheduled.

Now, for the January pictures -


Kokopelli fabric really stands out in this quilt

More tote bags made by Hope Quilters
Look at the bright colors in these tote bags.  They'll be given to LCOH members by the Care Ministry
Hope Quilters is blessed with another substantial fabric donation.  Just when we need additional fabrics for our mission quilts, God oversees to provide the necessary materials for us to continue to provide quilts for those in need.  Take a look at this latest group.
