WIP - Record keeping for "Quilts for Boston"

This past Saturday we had sew-in to work on the Quilts for boston. I got little bit of my binding done during the meeting/sew-in. Still a long way to go.

Also picked up 6 quilt tops, backing(cut and ready to sew) and batting to prep them. Here are the quilt tops pieced by BMQG members/volunteers.






Quilting in the longarm machine does need squaring off the sides for both quilt top and the backing. So, I pieced 4 backings and squared off 4 tops and dropped them off @Bits N Pieces Pelham, NH.
Bits N Pieces quilt shop has generously offered to quilt the quilts for us. Its so wonderful to see how our community comes together when people are in need for help and support.







4 done and 2 more to go. Also I to stitch the binding on to the quilt which I got quilted last week, you can read about it here.


Now linking up to Freshly Pieced blog by Lee.
