Quilty Parade of Love

LESSON FOR TODAY: QUILTERS ARE THE MOST GENEROUS PEOPLE....



Today I went to a quilty parade of love at the Amador Valley Quilters Guild... that's Amador Valley in California, near San Francisco.
The meeting opened with - of course - FOOD! (THIS IS only THE DESERT TABLE) LOL . there was also a salad table and a meat table and an appetizer table (appetizer - that's a joke)

After the eating, the Guild began its annual Parade of Charity Quilts... More than 900 quilts had been gathered for donation to area agencies...
A representative from each agency spoke about what the quilts do - about women coming to shelters with nothing except fear and children... and who get wrapped in a quilt. They told about young boys who turn their quilts into Superman Quilts, to protect them from all harm...

They told about the children who can't sleep without their very own special quilt...

There were table fulls of quilts

and then THE MOMENT - the quilts (or at least 200 of them) PARADED... the local Girls Scouts led the parade, ... kids paraded a quilt, women paraded a quilt, men paraded a quilt - round and round the room the colorful train of comfort circled... it was FABULOUS!






..... AND THE CUTEST OF ALL was this little one...



......................and then the quilts went off to their new home, to give warmth and comfort and love.
QUILTERS ARE THE MOST GENEROUS PEOPLE.




QUILTERS ARE THE MOST GENEROUS PEOPLE.
Happy Holidays,
