What a wonderful day for the Bama Belles Quilting Club! It is always so moving to me to see the quilts laid out on the pews like this--reminds me of seeing "old friends". Friday afternoon, 5 of the group and Jane's granddaughter laid out 93 quilts. A disclaimer: 17 of them were quilts from '06 that I had set aside for the Boy's Ranch so you may see some of YOUR old friends as well. I told the girls that I knew that they were in the bunch at Linda S' house and could easily pull them out if we did not have enough room. Consensus was: put them out and we will enjoy them again. I guess that makes up for the ones we have already delivered to Presbyterian Home for Children (PHFC) in Talledega earlier this year that didn't land on the pews for the exhibit.
I posted the pictures "backwards" as you know how the blogs go newest to oldest--there are 4 posts (20 pics) to see. Right after our display ended the girls helped me gather up the quilts since they were headed to three different locations. The bulk of them, of course, were delivered to the Boy's Big Oak Ranch. Lois counted 68 but I have been number crunching and verifying my documentation from the past two years with the pictures all evening-- mathematically it should total 67. I seem to be missing one, LOL--I looked very carefully at these pics to be sure I didn't spot it.
I set aside 11 that will go to PCHC soon and have 15 to send to WTIL headquarters as soon as I round a couple of boxes. Of course when I asked DJ to help me haul them back in the house his comment was "I thought you gave them all away today" ---close but not quite yet. . Thanks again to the blogger friends who have helped us to reach our goals for the kids and of course, my dear Bama Belles---look what we can do when we put our minds to it.
SOOOOO, I'll hush up and let you enjoy the show-----
