postheadericon Sandy Hook Quilt Update!

What a month Comforting Quilters!  Sandy Hook Quilts have made astounding progress!  As usually goes with these type projects, blocks begin to grow exponentially as they are sewn together.  Thus, our work day on the produced 20 quilts, bagged and ready to be put together!

So much heart and hard work has gone into the creation of these quilts.  Many thanks go out to our quilters,  our cutters, our ironing ladies, coffee people, photographers, card creators, angel tag builders, embroiderers and most of ALL - our community of giving people who have supported our journey with their generous donations.

The BIG reveal of our first Sandy Hook quilt was scheduled for the Battle of Byron event, however with the inclement weather, the reveal was rescheduled for the 12th of May.  What a sight to see!  Thanks to our own Bonnie Gehling who generously gave of her time and talents to document our first quilt.  Her efforts have made it possible for all of YOU to share in this moment.

Stay tuned for more quilts!  They will be coming out fast and I hope to have each one given a special place on our blog for you to view what our community has done for those families in Newtown, CT.
