I was fortunate enough to be a part of a Humanitarian Quilt Project!
Our Relief Society had a super Saturday last week and they were able to tie 11 quilts at this activity! A few of the women took some of the quilts home to tie and I quilted a few of the quilts, so when they are all done…there will be 30 quilts to donate!!
These quilts will stay here in our area to help some of the less fortunate people that live here.
I love to help the local charities!
It is nice to help people all around the world…but we can do a lot of things right here at home!
At this super Saturday activity, they had crafts, demo’s and of course food. But the service project was a big part of the whole thing!
The quilts had all been pre-sewn.
They had been sewn envelope style with the batting sandwiched in between the fabric. Then turned right side out. A top stitching held the edges so that they would stay flat.
They did not even have to put them on frames! They simply laid the quilts out flat on banquet tables and tied them!
Easy Peasy!I had 4 of the quilts and I told my friend that I would quilt mine.
It was almost as fast for me to quilt them, as it was to tie them…almost!! :)
These quilts are large!
They have a very nice thick batting.
And they will be super warm!!
So glad that I had the opportunity to help with this Humanitarian Quilt Project!
It always makes me feel good when I can help!
With the holiday season soon upon us, what humanitarian projects do you have in mind? Or what service can you give?
I need to be better at doing service throughout the year, not just at Christmas. Our hearts seem to turn more to service this time of year…which is a good thing! But it is also a good idea to spread it out throughout the whole year!
