Tuesday's This and That: May 18, 2021

Happy Tuesday!  Here are some tidbits for your week!

The American Quilt Study Group recently shared a story on Facebook.  It's about a quilt that was started during the 1918 pandemic.  Great story and you can read it here.

Preeti over at Sew Preeti Quilts is sponsoring a Quilt Along (QAL) for a neat plus (positive) quilt.  Not only is she offering the tutorial for the quilt but a really REALLY great schedule which provides us liberal time to finish it.  Read the post here! 

Many of you had a lot to share during the last week's posts!  In particular regarding the Church Ladies:

Kathie shared that her grandmother, aunts, and mum all were church lady quilters at a church in Slippery Rock, PA.  Kathie's mum is the last survivor and turned 95 on Saturday.

Happy Birthday Mum!!!

Sue S. belongs to a church where they still make "prayer quilts".  The members say a prayer for the recipient as they tie the quilt!  What a great thing to do!

Libby also is a Church Lady Quilter and her group was finally going to get together after 15 month separation due to the pandemic!  Have fun Libby!

Robin has a quilt from her grandmother that was quilted by "The ladies at the Methodist Church."  COOL!

Tomorrow I'll have some more tidbits.  I have to pick up groceries for the young man comes to mulch!

Have a safe and happy day!

  1. It was grand to see everyone today. We showed some of what we had accomplished during isolation and folks, we did a lot! We managed to give away 35 quilts, most of them to tornado victims last year. We acquired a new member today because we gave her a quilt after her husband died suddenly.
