Quilts received from the Plainview, NE. FCCLA students

On November 10th. the students of the Plainview, NE. FCCLA chapter held a community day at their local high school, featuring our Quilts For Kids by Kids program as their selected project for the day. The students, teachers, and friends gathered to make Preemie quilts for children in Nebraska hospitals. Lincoln Quilts For Kids provided the quilt kits, which include everything to make a quilt. Some of these young students had never sewn before, and were excited to make their first quilt to donate to a child in need. They had a fun day, and these are some of the quilts  that were made that day.

Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving, and  hope you have a  wonderful day with family and friends. And since it is the holiday season, don't forget to set your scales back 10 pounds at midnight tonight, so eating all that great food won't seem so depressing, hehe!

QFK Workshop at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln

  A few of our Quilts For Kids chapter volunteers had an awesome day at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum here in Lincoln, last Saturday while we participated in their Quilts For the Community day!
  Lisa, one of our volunteers from Plainview, brought her son Eric and DIL Maria, to join in the fun of learning how to make a quilt. The two of them, with the help of Mom, started working on a QFK kit quilt, and by the end of the day, only had three borders left to go on the top! Great job!
Kathy and Patricia travelled from the western part of the state to attend the workshop and enjoy the wonderful tour of all the fabulous quilts on display at the musuem. And Leslie came from Omaha.
  Kathy, Patricia, and Leslie all brought their adorable little machines with them, I just love em'! We missed those whom couldn't come, but we'll be going back again, so you'll get another chance to join us.
  We also had some very pretty quilts turned in today at the workshop, Thanks ladies!

Can't believe I've been gone so long!

I'm so sorry time has slipped by at such an alarming fast speed, since I've last posted. I had good intentions back then, to try and get back in the habit of posting regularly. But I failed to be able to get it done. The family has been busy, and as a leader for the QFK chapter, and its wonderful growth in the last year, it  keeps me hopping!
I have posted regularly on our chapter's Facebook page, and in our QFK Yahoo group, but now that Facebook is selectively  limiting our audience that sees our page's posts,  I am going to try a new approach, which hopefully will get me posting more on here. I've missed my little space here in blog land, and I've missed all of you too!
Wishing you all the best in the coming Holiday season.
