42... 59... 69... 73!
The final count for the Choo Choo Quilters' Great Cuddle Quilt Quest is 73 quilts—a huge and generous accomplishment over the initial, previously-set total of 50 quilts! This number includes 10 bed size quilts, of which 9 were delivered to the Children's Home/Chambliss Shelter in December.
In September, several guild members attended a weekend Cuddle Quilt Workshop to assemble, baste and quilt pre-cut quilt kits. The Quest continued through December of 2010 with the resulting tabulation of 73 completed quilts at the January 2011 guild meeting. The quilts are donated to the Chambliss Shelter and will be delivered soon.
Well done, Choo Choo Team! That's a lotta quilts!
