At our last Peace By Piece bee we made a RECORD number of quilts! There were 23 completed quilts at the end of the day !!!!!!!!!! There were BIG quilts, little quilts, Pretty quilts, Cute quilts, Quilts with Easter Bunnies and quilts with puppies. There was even a quilt with a PINK ELEPHANT.
VISIT FROM THE
you missed the last bee you also missed a visit from the Arizona Blankets 4
Kids President, Karen Dressler. She stopped by to see how we do things and got
a look at some of the blankets we made that day.
A Visit TO the Board
Arizona Blankets 4 Kids board meeting was March 12. I dropped in on the
meeting and provided members with a little show & tell presentation of
some of the 23 quilts we made last
There were a lot of Ohhhh and Ahhhh sounds coming from the members. They sent
me home with a new supply of labels and a BIG
THANK YOU for
all the Peace By Piece members.
new PEACE by PIECE labels are here!!!!!!!
They arrived in my mailbox shortly after our last bee. Alexis and I
spent an evening sewing them on all the quilts we made last month, so our name
is out there in the community being seen. Of course you’ll get a chance to
see them at the next bee. I only ordered 40 labels so we need to vote on
whether or not you like them well enough to order more.
ANOTHER NEW THING
MONEY Means MO’ batting
received a donation of $150.00 from
Specialty Loaders. They heard of our frustration with using donated batting
that was so fat our machines didn’t like it.
So they came to the rescue with enough money to keep us in batting for a
while. Some people are just
IS IN THE AIR
spring the Arizona Blankets 4 Kids
board invites volunteers to a Spring Bee at the Chandler Police Department.
That bee was held this Saturday, March 19. I was unable to attend the bee due
to a schedule conflict. I haven’t heard yet how it went but expect to have
some news by the time I see you at our bee.
WHICH BRINGS ME TO OUR BEE
time for us to do our thing again… That is, have a BEE. March 24. I hope you
all can make it cuz we’ve got a lot to do. I’ll have quilts layered and
ready for you to quilt. We are out of tops so we need to sew up some of those
kits or there won’t be any tops to quilt next month. Of course we’ll need
to do the serious work of testing and breaking in that new ironing board and
voting on whether or not the new Peace by Piece labels are worthy of our
quilts. And as usual there will be something chocolate
and door prizes!
