Raffle Quilt Construction Update - Second Work Day
Sept 14 we held our second work session. Wanda, Debra and Ida cut the remaining fabric readying it for block construction. What a trooper Ida was she cut only white last time and all the white this time. On the ironing boards keeping the assembly line rolling were Gail, Karlie and Janet who jumped between several works stations. The sewing machines of Wendy, Joanne, Darlene B, Darlene C, Lyn and Jean worked flat out all day producing close to half of the needed blocks. Darlene C is one speedy sewer completing the first block for us to admire. Treats to eat were provided by Wendy and Gail; weren’t those chips so addicting one was not enough. At lunch break we had a chance to rest, visit, stretch and fuel up for the afternoon of work. The remaining unfinished blocks were taken for homework to be completed for our next meeting where we will sew the blocks together forming the quilt top.
