June Work Day

June found us continuing to work on quilts for the Hope Village in Ghana, Africa.
Of course we had Show and Tell on some of those quilts as well as other quilts made for the various missions of Lutheran Church of Hope.  Jean's Grandaughter from AZ visited us for a few minutes, helping to show several quilts.  We always welcome visitors, especially those who may become future quilters - hint, hint.  Everyone is welcome to join us whether you just want to sit and visit a bit, hand sew on a binding or bring your machine and work on piecing a quilt top.  We always need "quilters" - those who do the actual quilting.  Each one of us has a talent for any part of making a quilt.  We know our quilts are used and appreciated by the people who receive them.

The ASP Mission Team  (Appalachia Service Project) was on the ground there this past week.  In addition to building and repairing housing for those in need, the the team carried along a dozen or so quilts we've made.  The recipients of those quilts were grateful for them, knowing that we provide them for their warmth and comfort.  

Here are pictures of some of the Hope Village quilts, both complete and in progress.  We're making eighteen quilts, both single and double bed sizes.  Several of the quilts will be on display soon before being sent to Ghana.  Be watching for them in the next few weeks.

These are some Hope Quilters who attended Saturday.  Not everyone got captured by the camera.
