The group usually has 2 quilts on the frames, one for the excellent quilters, who can quilt in all directions, and in curves, and one for those who just hand quilt in straight lines. Some of the straight line crowd are beginners, and some (like me) don't really plan to get better than straight lines (I have a machine for that, after all). The donated top was put on the "Rookie" frame.
After quilting it all last winter, it was completed, bound, labelled, and today was commissioned to its new work. It will become a warm hug, from us, to the family that will live in a Habitat for Humanity home that a group from the church (young and old) will be working on during March Break, in Virginia.
Before it heads off, I took it for one more outing in the snow.
For the eagle eyed, that is one of my Moskoka Chairs, just peeking out of the snow, to the right of the quilt. Yeap, the snow is about 4 feet deep in my back yard now. I almost wish I was going with the quilt, next week.

Meanwhile, because the snow is still that deep, finishing my Frost Buster Mittens seemed like a good idea.
Don't they look nice! They are off to show and tell tomorrow.
