I have done much better with keeping my time keeping & material records on the quilts. I created a tracking sheet that stays with the quilt, and once the quilt is complete I input the data into a computer program. Works pretty well if I do say so myself.
So far this year I have quilted Iowa Comfort Quilts #66, 67, 68, 69, 70 and 71. I should be able to get two more quilted this week also. Quilts 66, 67 and 68 are already bound, and I am working on binding # 69. It will not take long to bind 70 and 71 as they are both hope quilts.
These 8 quilts will probably be all that I get done this month. I have a class for two days next week...and the following week I have blocked out for one of my own quilts.
Later tonight I will be attending the De Soto city council meeting and presenting a quilt for use in the first responders vehicle or the city cruiser. Additionally I will be telling the council about Iowa Comfort and the mission statement...so they will know that we are a possible resource for comfort, should they be made aware of a need.
Late last year I received a generous donation to Iowa Comfort. It came from the gentleman that requested the quilt for the little girl battling cancer. With that donation I was able to order a bolt of backing material and a bolt of batting. Thank you so much for your generosity, it will allow us to continue helping others.
I will try to get pictures up of the completed quilts on Saturday, along with tell you how they came to Iowa Comfort.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
PS I think sometime this week this blog will have 10,000 hits. I know it is silly of me to watch such things....but I can't help but smile, and think how much we have accomplished in the past 15 months.
