I have been away from blogging for a while, but with good reason! We started a new quilt guild in Morgan City, LA. We are The Sew Happy Quilters Guild! We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month ( and the Saturday right after, for those who work). We have been very busy. We made a charity quilt of a local benefit. We put together 30 Quilts For Kids (sponsored by Downy). We made a one-of a kind quilt and raffled it off to raise money for our local Boy Scout Troop. I posted a picture here. We call it Stars and Stripes.You can read all about that on our facebook page. Search us out! Sew Happy Quilters Guild. AND, if that's not enough....I am presently working on 5 bridesmaid dresses for a wedding in August!

We have a new quilt guild in Morgan City, LA! The Sew Happy Quilters Guild. We are going to have a super quilt show in early 2011! Until then we are busy with quilts for charities. Quilts for Kids is our main charity. They give quilts to kids in hospitals, are victim of disaster. It's really cool! They send us the kits (fabric, instructions, label) we provide the sewing, batting , and quilting. We then send it back to them along with a few of our own to add to the pile. Then they do there thing! This program is sponsored by Downy, you may have seen it on TV. If you would like to help out, just go to www.quiltsforkids.org . We are also making quilts for a local fundraiser to fight childhood cancer. Other projects slated are quilts for a local church youth group to auction off, a quilt for the local troop of Boy Scouts to raffle off. We are just SEW Happy to help out!
I have been sewing day and night! I have not updated in a while, sorry! I will try to stay on top of this. Here's where we are now: Completed a March Table Runner for display at The Quilt Cupboard (My local QS). It is a little on the advanced side, but so cute when finished!
