Postcards and Hearts

The Wee Bee Quilters are making Postcards for the Sacred Threads 2017 Hopes and Dreams Postcard Project.  We had a workshop today on making postcard.  Most of them are not completed but we had fund making them.
Sandra Ealy (Yetunde) was our teacher for today. We also had a visitor to the class Sheryl Smith, she came to get her postcard making on.

For those of you who could not make the workshop, we still need your contribution. Please make a postcard or two.  We plan to mail them all together from the Wee Bee Quilters.
Sandra Ealy also brought us a community service project, Heart Pillows for cancer patients at Sibley Memorial Hospital.  This is a most worthy service for patients going through breast cancer.  These pillows are used after surgery to relieve pain from the surgical incision, protects against accidental bumps, and help ease edema and relieve shoulder tension.  The heart pillows are given immediately to patients post-operatively to aid in recuperation.

 The pattern for the pillows were passed out during the workshop.  I will e-mail the pattern to you if you were not at the meeting.

Wee Bee will be having a sew-in to make the pillows in April.  Poly-fill will be provided to stuff the pillows.  You can use any fabric you like even soft fleeces.  Make them colorful (they do not have to be pink) or even with a message.  If you make them before the April meeting, please remember to leave the right side of the pillow open to add the poly-fill and also a label that we are having made to put on the pillows (Lovingly made by the Wee Bee Quilters of Washington, D.C.) or something like that.

Here is a picture of the Heart pillow.  The plastic bag will also be provided.

We also had show-n-tell. 

Please excuse the layout of the post, I am have a hard time positioning the photos. 

Well that is all for now.  Have a great quilting day.
