Allatoona Guild Meeting Yesterday

The local police came to our guild meeting yesterday. We have been making Children's quilts all year and they came to accept them. They keep quilts in their cars so that when a child is removed from a home, they have something to comfort them with.

Several officers came and they were very appreciative of the quilts we had for them. I am not sure how many there were exactly, but a very large stack. Also, there were a couple of crocheted afghans and a bunch of beanie babies.

After the officers left with the quilts, we had a showcase of Quilts of Valor that we had also been working on. There were at least 15 quilts ready to be sent to the wounded soldiers and there are many more being worked on.

We then played Quilto where I was the caller so I didn't get to play. The cost of a card was a fall FQ. We played 4 games and the winners of the first 3 got 17 FQ each. The last game was a coverall and that winner received over 40 FQ. The winner was a new member of the guild who didn't know we were playing so someone else gave her a FQ to buy in.

Lastly, we had our Thanksgiving potluck. I had made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and used my cute little cupcake stand. It is a fun way to display/serve them.

I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
