May 10th Work Day

May 10th brought another wonderful day of fellowship and quilting.  We had new members attending, including one who made her first quilt top entirely during the work day!  
We welcome all quilters and want-to-be quilters.  If you have a sewing machine and are open to learning to make a simple quilt, please come to the next work day June 14th.

We are continuing to use the beautiful Ghana fabrics to make altar cloths.  These are a few of the ones Christy brought in on Saturday.  They'll be sent to Ghana with the Mission Team in June.   

We've also begun to make quilts for Hope Village in Ghana.
This is one of the first nearing completion.  

We always have show and tell - -

Wow, look at this beauty made by Tiffany.
We'll add the Riverside label and deliver it for the August quilt auction.
Here's the back of the quilt.

Heather brought in this Noah's Ark quilt.  A child is going to sleep well under this wonderful quilt.

Summer just began learning to make a quilt.  A very enthusiastic new Hope Quilter!

At the end of the work day - - - a complete quilt top!  Wow!  
This is what learning quilting is all about - helping a new quilter make her first quilt.  

Hope Quilters hard at work doing what we love to do.  Helping one another pick out just the right fabrics, cutting, ironing and sewing the quilt tops.
