Freedom from Cancer workshop day!


Hey all,

Today a large group of the Possum Town Quilters got together and worked on blocks for the Freedom from Cancer quilt that we will be donating to the Lowndes County Relay for Life group.  We were making two of the blocks from Amy Gibson's class on Block of the Month from Craftsy.com.  We had decided to buy pizza for lunch, so no one would need to prepare lunch for everyone.  We had about 22 people show up.  The challenge committee was working on the opportunity quilt we donate to the Arts Center for our "rent".  Lots of progress was made on both.  We only need a few more blocks on the Relay for Life quilt and the challenge quilt was in the beginning stages of assembly.  Woooooot!!

Blocks from before lunch!
So proud of how hard everyone worked.  So without further ado pictures from the day.

Mary Anne, Sandi, Lory, and Linda working on blocks.

Brenda was working on the challenge quilt for the RAC.

Linda and Carol working hard.

Ebba was ironing and arranging the blocks  on the wall so we could keep track of how many more we needed.

Julia and Emily (not pictured) were working on the challenge quilt too!

And by the end of the day, we had most of the blocks made.   Several ladies agreed to make a few at home.  Please email me and let me know how many of what you are making so I can make sure we have enough of the right blocks.  If we have extra that is ok they can go with Annette's blocks for the quilt of valor.   ;-) We also got the back pieced and ready to go.  So at our next meeting, I propose that after lunch we team sew the rows together, add the border and be done!

  1. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous...you go gals! Before my mother got Alzheimer's, she battle advanced inflammatory breast cancer. So, she survived five years, cancer free...then alzheimer's destroyed her mind, her body, and challenged all of our lives. We love her and are so glad to have her with us still..but two such devastating diseases!!
