SANTAS ON HIS WAY...

Every Year in August we start our annual Holiday Quilt Drive.  The goal is to make as many Halloween and Christmas quilts as we possibly can by the Peace by Piece Quilters  Christmas Party in December.  The drive got off to a great start!  Halloween and Christmas fabrics were everywhere.  Kit were being sewn into tops, tops were being layered, basted, quilted and tied.  Binding was going on.  AND lots of holiday stuff went home with volunteers to be worked on.  At the September bee all that homework will be coming back ready for the next step in the process to becoming a holiday hug for a child that needs one.
