Quilting in Seattle

I meet the most absolutely generous and wonderful people! A woman I met at church, Patty Federighi, runs the neatest quilting ministry called Peace through Pieces and she travels to parts of Africa (Burundi, The Congo, Kenya) and teaches women to become quilting instructors. In the meantime she also runs an organization in Seattle that makes about one-hundred quilts a year for bone marrow transplant patients in the Puget Sound area. Anyhow, she volunteered to help me quilt today, and we finished all of the quilting in about four hours! I am so super grateful because I was thinking that it would take years! Now I just have to bind it!
