Many Hands Make A Cool Quilt!

Edited: The squares in the individual bingo blocks were made and arranged as shown in this link.

This WIP is a joint effort by members of the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild here in north-central Pennsylvania. These 20 (or maybe 24 -- I can't remember) blocks were made by guild members for a quilt bingo game at a guild meeting a couple of years ago. After the meeting, all the blocks were collected and put away for a future charity project. Some were made into placemats and table toppers, but these remained.

A couple of weeks ago, at a guild charity sewing day, Barb and Lynn sewed the blocks together into rows, Peggi then added the black sashing and border and now Angie is working on the quilting.

Once the binding is on, the quilt will go to someone in the community in need of comfort. And all those involved in making it can feel good about what they've accomplished. Nice job, ladies!
