Each year my church makes 5 quilts for the Bishop's Storehouse. It is my assignment to make sure this happens. For the first 3 years I made the tops and then the women at church came together and tied them. Then in 2007 I became a part owner of a long arm, so in 2008 I decided to ask different women to make the tops and then I would quilt them on the long arm. That worked out well so I did the same thing for this year. So far two of the tops have been completed. One of the tops was done by Chikako H's #1 daughter (she needed a service project). When she completed the top she gave it to me in a brown bag. I brought it home and put it on the table. When I came back through the dinning room this is what I saw. Later that day my son said mom look at the picture I took. I told him yup that looks like the one I took. The next day when I came home my husband said I took a picture of Ferdie in the bag. I said yup that makes three :o}. It's all in the bag!.
Just as a side note when I get the 5 quilts quilted for the Bishop's Storehouse I will post them so you can see. So far they're turning out great.
