What's red, white and blue and being quilted?

It's the quilt for Emma's Hope Fundraiser! Connie, Emma's grandma went to see the quilting-in-progress on her noon break and she just e-mailed me these photos. I should have downloaded and saved them so I could get them larger. Was anxious to get them posted. May try that later. So here are the ladies from Plato, Glencoe and surrounding communities who are doing the handquilting of the top made from blocks from so many of you!




And don't they look like a happy group? And who wouldn't be when there is fabric, needle, thread and friends involved?!!!!!

Wish I was there helping them. There is nothing better then quilting with friends. Old and new.....And for such a good cause....

I am sure Emma and her family will treasure that quilt. What better way to spend some time, doing what we love, with our friends and for a good cause. Nothing is better. I am proud to have been a small part of the Love and Prayers for Emma

Women gathered around a quilt frame - that's such a sweet picture. I know they were all having a barrel of fun. And for such a good cause.

It's great to see a bunch of ladies gathered around the quilting frame. I wasn't sure if people still did that. Nice to know it still happens :)

Oh my. I wish I had been there. How fun. That picture almost makes me cry it is so sweet. Reminds me of my mom and the gals at church quilting when I was a kid. You don't see that much anymore.

Absolutely lovely quilts, thanks for sharing. We just love sitting on the rug and quilting here at home in Alabama!
