pictures from Circle of Friends

In my last post I told you that the gals from Circle of Friends were going to help out Iowa Comfort in honor of citizenship day.

Shortly before six oclock, people started showing up for our meeting.  I had brought the following fabric to kit....and although it was a lot of fabric, I knew I could always take it back home with me.

 This fabric had mostly been donated by Deb Steere at the charity sew day up north earlier this month.

As people came in they set up their mats and started cutting.  I had picked a pattern from Bonnie Hunters website, and gave each table cutting instructions.

Lets just say that many hands can accomplish much.  With all that cutting going on, our youngest member of Quilt Circle went around to the tables and collected the strips.
Once collected and sorted at the table kits were assembled.

And shortly after an hour this is what was left of the fabric.
Thirty one complete kits, 2 pillowcase kits, and 4 or 5 partial kits.

Thank you to everyone who helped!  You will never know how much it means to me, and I know the kids that get these quilts will love them.  A special thanks to Jacque Johnson of Adel Quilting and Dry Goods for putting this together.
