45 Cuddle Quilts for Valentine's Day

There's nothing like "sharing the love" on Valentine's Day! Members of the Choo Choo Quilters quilt guild created 45 Cuddle Quilts that were delivered to the Children's Home/Chambliss Shelter this past week.
The Choo Choo Quilters Guild presented 45 Cuddle Quilts toChildren's Home/Chambliss Shelter on Valentine's Day. Shown (from left) are Elizabeth Sexton, Volunteer Services, Paulette Acord, CHCS Director, Sherry Reed, Choo Choo Quilters Cuddle Quilt Program Chair, and Nancy Allen, Choo Choo Quilters guild member.
"The staff at the Children's Home were very grateful for the quilts," said Cuddle Quilt Program Chair, Sherry Reed, "they commented appreciatively about the time and effort it took to make [the quilts] for the children."

The Cuddle Quilt project has been a long-standing community service project for the Choo Choo Quilters. An annual full-day workshop is scheduled some time during the year for guild members to get together as a group to sew blocks, assemble quilt tops, baste and prepare the tops for quilting... as well as socialize. Many hands working together get a lot accomplished and it's also a fun day to spend together. Kudos to the guild for all the wonderful, beautiful quilts!
