Many Hands Make Many Blocks

Hello Everyone, 
You might remember I mentioned in an earlier post about the Irondequoit Quilt Club making quilt blocks to be pieced into quilts for Wounded Warriors at Fort Drum, NY.  The guild gave those who wanted to make blocks each month a fat quarter each of red, blue and white fabrics. I have completed two blocks. One for March and one for April.
March 2013 BOM Antique Tile
April 3013 BOM Mrs. Taft's Choice
Each month the blocks are collected and then either someone from the local quilt shop, or someone from the Irondequoit Quilt Club pieced them into quilt tops.
Quilt Blocks and Top pieced by members of Irondequoit Quilt Club.
At the April meeting this beautiful top was presented to Judy Merritt, the owner of Cafe Sewciety quilt shop in Webster.
Judy Thanks Irondequoit  Quilt Club
Judy explains to all of us how much these quilts mean not only to the soldiers but their families as well. The goal is to make sure each wounded soldier is given a quilt either when they arrive or when they leave Fort Drum.
Until next time… 
Happy Quilting, Kathy
