With Love From Some Great Girls!

Remember this quilt from a couple posts back?  Well last weekend we got together for our leadership overnighter with the girls 16-18 from church and they tied this quilt.  We had a lot of other activities going on that night too!

IMG_8435I can't believe we got it done.  That's a lot of ties!  There were probably 5-7 rows left when a few of us leaders finally decided to head to bed about 1:30am. 

When we woke up in the morning it was all done!  A group of girls decided to finish it up in the middle of the night!  I was so surprised and so glad it was done.  My fingers were sore from all the tying from the night before!

There were a few ties that needed to be re-done...but for the most part they did a great job.  I bound it Friday and now it's ready to send off to the Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake.  I wonder where it will end up!

So cool, Tina. I love how the girls finished it after their leaders went to bed.

I haven't heard how the evening went. Was it a beaming success? How did Kathie's craft work out? I think the quilt is cute ... and so timely to give to the humanitarian center.
