Outreach Update

 In an attempt to get back on track with this blog, let me start with today. Jane and I (Tina) visited the Habitat for Humanity office this morning to sort through the outreach quilts. It was great fun to see them all lined up on the conference room table!

In this view from the opposite side of the room, you can catch a glimpse of a quilt that was made by Ninigret Quilters in 2004, hanging on the wall of the conference room. Next time I visit, I'll take a better picture and tell you more about it.

 Jane and I proceeded to sort and stack quilts for each family. It was fun to find just the right quilt for each family member.

When all was said and done, eight quilts remained, ready to find a good home.

Thank you to all of you who participated in the Outreach workshop at the last meeting. It was great to see so many of you excited to "shop" our fabric stash and take piles home. We can't wait to see what you lovingly create for our neighbors in need.
