The Capitol Quilt Guild in Raleigh is a wonderful group with a very huge heart!
Just before my presentation they did a “parade of quilts” around the very large room –so many quilts made and destined to be given to those in need.
These are the quilts just from this past month!
This happens every month!
All of the agencies and locations that receive these quilts monthly from this fabulous group are truly blessed.
I’ve always thought of quilting as a loving, caring, giving thing and these ladies and gentlemen prove it every month when the donation quilts arrive in droves!
I quickly snuck up on stage when this presentation of the quilts was going on just so I could get a few photos.
I only regret that I couldn’t get a photo of each and every maker and the quilt they had put so much time into!
If you want to know where the heart of the guild is, look to those who are making the donation quilts.
They surrounded the room!
THIS is what it is about!
After my presentation we had a regular Show & Share and I was once again blown away by the hard work of these quilters!
Smith Mountain Morning from Scraps & Shirttails II!
Fit for a bed!
With a backing to boot!
And another! Just as glorious!
Roll Roll Cotton Boll from String Fling, started as a mystery!
And a completed Lozenges Leader & Ender Challenge!
Great show of scraps!
And the show & share kept coming. More from the guild meeting, and two days worth of workshops! I’ve put it all in a slide show just for you!

Thank you for bringing the quilts to share, ladies! I know it is extra bulk and weight and one more bag to carry, but I so love seeing it and I so appreciate your hard work!
In real time:
Today is the day my dad comes in from Arizona and our Thanksgiving week begins! Hooray!
Only first I have to go to the dentist and start the process of replacing a crown. NOT Hooray!
I have a grocery list as long as my arm, and need to do all of the shopping for the week in between the dentist, and picking up dad at 6:15pm.
There is a stack of book and ruler orders that need to be filled and dropped at the post office today as well.
It will be a bit crazy, but after picking up dad at the airport – we’ll grab a bite of dinner and make our way up to the cabin where I will be until SATURDAY!
There are a couple of other guests coming tomorrow to join us – my friend Irene and her hubby recently relocated from San Antonio, TX to Louisville, KY due to his job. They don’t have any family for Turkey Day so I invited them to come join in our cabin activities! It’s going to be a fun week!
And of course, the release of clue #1 for Allietare on FRIDAY!
So here we are the Monday before Thanksgiving – what’s on your to-do list this week?
