Project Night Night Quilt Challenge Complete: 20 Quilts!!!

We did it!  With help from lots of volunteers "elves", we were able to meet our goal of creating 20 handmade quilts for Project Night Night.  Here's a mosaic that shows most of them:


You can also visit the Flickr page to see details of each.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone for their support.  It was a wonderful project, and the organization can't wait to get them.  I heard from their Deputy Director today, who said they'll be distributed immediately, as their need is greatest at this time of year.

I also heard from several participants about how the project allowed them to stretch creatively, and try new techniques, so it's a win-win!

Next year, let's double that number!
