On November 6, Firehouse Quilts had their 5th outdoor quilt collection day in the parking lot next to Above and Beyond Sewing and Vacuum. It was a beautiful fall day, unlike the 90+ degree days we had earlier in the year. There were 50 members who donated 249 quilts!
Members also turned in 35 pillow cases, 168 BACA bags, 1 afghan, 5 cute knitted toys, 1 pillow, 19 receiving blankets, 3 knit/crochet blankets, 2 knit/crochet baby hats, and 8 knit scarves. What a productive group of ladies we have!!!
There were tables of kits and fabric and bundles of batting available for everyone.
Every time, we become more efficient with this process. The group of ladies who always help are very much appreciated. And Cathy takes photos of all the quilts and creates beautiful slide shows!
A huge thank you to all Firehouse Quilt members who just keep making quilts and making quilts so we can continue with our mission!!!
