Applause, please!

…for these wonderful women who’ve finished their quilts for the tots at the KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centre.

Until 5 weeks ago most had never wielded a rotary cutter or made a quilt and several had no machine sewing experience at all. 

Were they daunted? Well, maybe just a little.  But they jumped in, pushed their boundaries wider, and survived the experience, in the process discovering God-given talents some never knew they had, and gaining confidence to attempt another quilt down the track. 

Several even made more than one quilt - Wow!

With Linda’s patient and easy to follow instructions they’ve progressed from cutting to piecing, to quilt-sandwiching, to quilting and tying, to binding.  It’s been a bumpy ride for several, but they’ve hung on and ended up with beautiful quilts, stitched with so much love.

I just want to give every one of them a huge hug!

Thank you, ladies, you can take a well-deserved bow!
