Carlotta's Quilts

 I wanted to finish up with the last few pictures I took
at our
Show and Tell with the
Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild meeting 
this month.
 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.

again what talented group of quilters you have in your groups - sharing such wonderful talent gives me so many ideas I would have to live 2 or 3 lifetimes to make them all!!
