Thank You, Hilton Head Heroes!!!

We just returned from THE BEST VACATION EVER!!! all thanks to DS2's hospital social worker and the wonderful folks at Hilton Head Heroes.

We had a fun-filled week highlighted by a private boat tour, a family jet skiing adventure, and a professional portrait session on the beach at Sea Pines Resort.

If you need a place to make a tax-deductible contribution, please consider Hilton Head Heroes.  They make vacations possible for children with life-threatening illnesses.  Our family hadn't had a vacation in 5 years (or more) and couldn't really afford one anytime soon.  They not only made our trip possible, they treated us like royalty.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone involved!!!

Sign-ups for the Spring 2014 UFO Club are closed. All participants were required to sign up by April 7, 2014.  All qualifying UFOs must be completed by Midnight (EDT) on June 30, 2014.  It only took me TWO MONTHS to post my list to the blog!  (Sorry, BlogLand, I've been busy!)

Membership Details:

Membership is at 20.  There are 15 quilters in the NO SEND group and 5 members in the SEND group.  These quilters are finishing projects at break-neck speed!  In the time it's taken me to get around to posting this, 13 quilters have completed 38 projects!!!  I'm pretty  sure we are breaking to group's all-time record for the most finishes in a single session.  (And let me tell you, I am SO excited!!!)

Keep those finished items coming!

My list is as follows:
Commission Quilt:
1. Flower Garden (DONE!!!)
3 "C" quilts:

3. Inspired by... The Series
And just to change it up a bit...:
1. Baby F's Quilt
2. QE2 Goodbye Quilt - You've all seen this one before, but after 15 YEARS of hibernation, I would REALLY like to get this one finished.  Maybe not during this session, but (hopefully) this year!
Most of the photos can be accessed in the following post:

Happy Finishing!!!
