Final Quild Service Quilts of 2011

As President of our quilt guild I've had to be very involved with each of the quilts we've done to help others.  The last one we completed was in Memory of Kevin Orr, a police officer who died in the line of duty.  I taught Kevin in school and his parents live here in Blanding.  They used this quilt as a fund raiser to help COPS, a suport group which helps and counsels families of deceased officers. 

Accepting the quilt at the Oct. 2011 meeting were Gene, Damon Orr,  Claudia Orr, Jolyn Orr, and Julie Lucero

The other quilt the guild joined together to compete was this beautiful Sampler Quilt for the Blue Mountain Hospital.  Deb Bayles and Cathy Cosby spearheaded the effort.  I made one of the blocks, however.
