I wanted to finish up with the last few pictures I took
Show and Tell with the
Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild meeting
I was especially impressed with the
Art Quilts by
( what a beautiful name, too!)
Carlotta likes to add bead work to
each of her pieces.
She said you will always
be able to find some type of
bug or insect in each of her designs.
Many of her pieces are made for customers.
As a side note,
the charity work that goes on behind the scenes
with the PMQG
led by B.J. and Jacki
is equally impressive.
This month we gathered quilts for the
Elderly victims of the
Yarnell Hill Fire
As many of you may have read in the National news,
we lost 19 Firefighters from the Prescott Fire Department
in this tragedy.
Our state of Arizona has grieved deeply,
and communities have looked for ways to help.
127 buildings and many neighborhoods
in Yarnell were completely destroyed.
These quilts donated by our guild members
will go directly to the Elderly
who have been identified specifically as needing
blankets for the winter.
This really is what quilting is all about.
