First, they were nothing but squares of fabric cut from various remnants of excess fabric.
Then these blocks came together into repeated patterns or
scrappy quilt tops stitched with love by warm-hearted quilters.
The pile of partially assembled quilts grew and grew ready to be tied with strings of warm wishes.
I love the days I spend with my dedicated group of Undercover Quilters, who generously use a bit of their time and talent to share with others.
Our group works mainly undercover, as the name implies, but I caught a couple of them as they tied their way across a quilt top. It's truly a miracle how the fabric donations multiple and new quilt tops keep appearing.
These quilts have helped both people in the community and have been sent off to other countries. They have found their way to tornado victims, pregnancy shelters, nursing homes, hospitals, women's shelters, Habitat for Humanity homes and other locations.
Quilters are, indeed, generous and loving people. How do you share your time and talents?
