Boc, Boc, Boc. . . Cluck, Cluck, Cluck
One of the themes we are working on is the Chickens Quilt. This is one of our special request quilts that is being made for a young lady who has Multiple Sclerosis. One day she was visiting the care facility (with her mom) where her grandmother is residing and she saw one of our quilts being delivered to one of the residents. She really loved the quilts delivered that day, so Bonnie, our quilter/ delivery person, asked what was her favorite thing: Chickens! She used to help her family with the chickens when she was younger.
This is how some of our themes are decided . . . someone needs a little pick-me-up and a quilt is organized, the squares are stitched and sent in by members, and the quilter makes the beautiful quilt.
This is the quilt top that Bonnie has already assembled for this young lady. All it needs now is the binding and the help of Bonnie's long-arm machine, Lizzy. Then it will be ready for delivery.
