Charity Never Faileth . . .

Each year at our Quilt show we raffle off the chance to win a wonderful quilt.

The funds that we receive from this are donated to charity.

This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for all of our many blessings.  We feel so fortunate that we are able to sew quilts and  appreciate the opportunity to help out someone in need.

Some years we have given the money to Primary Children’s Hospital.

If we know of a need of someone close to us the money will be given to them.

Last year one of our guild members four year old grandson was battling leukemia.  We decided that we would give the money to his family.

This year we had another member whose daughter had a new born baby that was born with complications and had to have immediate surgery.

Our charity quilt was made from ‘Aunt Gracie’ fabrics.

Twelve members each signed up for a block of the month and made two blocks.

Laurie Price  put the blocks together.  If you have ever  made a quilt using blocks that different people have sewn you know that this is no easy task.  Everyone sews differently.  Getting everything to line up perfectly is a challenge.  Laurie did a great job.  The quilt was absolutely darling.

I bought my tickets and kept my fingers crossed.




People are always so excited for the chance to win the charity quilt.  The tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.

Wow, wouldn’t you love to buy a quilt for that price?

Well, our lucky winner this year just happened to be a guild member, Linda Sheffield.

Another hi-lite of our show is the $3 luncheon.   Let me tell you, these girls are dog-gone good  cooks!  All members bring salads and goodies as well as a few finger foods.  Everything is always delicious!  We have had SO many people request that we make a cookbook.

What do you think girls?  Are you up for it?


Amanda, Cathy, Judy, and Susann.  Hey, I feel a calendar coming on!   lol!  Remember that movie?  You have to admit, those are some pretty good looking buns!

Hope I’m not barking up the wrong tree!  We all need a good laugh now and then.

Bye for now!
