February, 2012


The Peace by Piece Quilters have had a very special project going on behind the scenes.  Several month ago Nina collected a quilt top that someone fell out of love with during the process of constructing it.  The top was passed onto Terry and she preformed her longarm talents turning it into an awesome quilt.  At last months bee Show n' Tell it was decided that this quilt would be completed and donated to the church.  Leslie attached a hanging sleeve and Peace by Piece Quilters label, Doreen did the machine work to attach the binding and Nina did the hand work to complete the binding. The finished size of the quilt is 80"x108".  It is our hope that the church will use it as a fundraiser.  Every year Mission del Sol Presbyterian Church holds a Super Flea.  This is a one day event held at the church.  Members of the congregation clean out their closets and garages to provide gently used goods for the Super Flea.  The monies raised mounts into many thousands and is used to support their many mission projects.  If you would like to attend the Super Flea it will be held on Saturday, February 11. 







The January bee was a busy one with with 25 quilts being completed and a huge pile of fabric that was turned into those all important kit-kits.  For those of you that don't know what a kit-kit is...  It is a collection of fabrics with a pattern that someone can then take and cut all the fabrics into the appropriate sizes.  All of this prep work allows volunteers to make quilt tops during future bees.
