Sunday, friend Sue, took the quilt to some of the other quilters and they worked, quilting bee-style, to sew down the binding. Some of these beautiful women took their first sewing stitches.
Here, Linda takes her turn. This shot really shows the beautifully soft flannel backing, chosen not only for warmth, but to keep the quilt from slipping off Diann's (giftee) lap.

Sewing in unison are Sharon and Linda
Several others from trimming the edges on Saturday night at Sue's.
There are two more, Dorna and Debra, to put their stitches into the binding and Project D will be finished except for the dedication label. Jerre, our contingent artist, is using her expertise to draw a very meaningful design, and we will all sign it.
Thank you everyone for the encouragement and lovely comments about our project. If only love and a quilt could cure ALS!!! Stay tuned.....
