Project Linus - Third Sunday Group - March

Our 3rd Sunday group met at JoAnns to make Project Linus blankets. The quilt top of the day was the bar quilt. We chose 5 strips of 9" wide fabric and cut each strip in half. Easy and quick. Four people stitched nine bar quit tops in less than 3 hours. I sewed 2 in an hour and a half. Jodie and Debby worked on projects they brought.

We did more than just make bar quilt tops. Eleven blankets were finished! I was starting to machine quilt one blanket, when Jenny arrived with 4 helpers. They started tying blankets. Then Laurie arrived with 2 more helpers. We haven't had that many people at our blanket group in a long time. Laurie warned Louise they were coming, so Louise had lots of blankets ready to tie.

Laurie and I also brought finished blankets (5 and 2 each), so 18 finished blankets went home with Louise to get labeled and delivered to hospitals. I neglected to take pictures of most of the blankets, so enjoy these 2 bar quilt tops.
