Our road is being resurfaced so there are ROAD CLOSED signs up around 90th Ave/P30. Despite the signs you can drive on it. There might be flaggers and delays but YOU CAN GET TO THE RETREAT! Just let then know you're coming to The Quilted Steeple if they ask. Should be done in two weeks.

Another great project from our local designer, Sandy. Puts you in a fall mood!

Today it is my turn to post our bluebird projects featuring the Hush Hush low volume line of fabric by twenty-one of Riley Blake Designers.
My project is Fall Ya All and uses the traditional patchwork method.

Sunday morning is a special time for the QOV participants with the dedication and blessing of the quilts worked on so diligently during the weekend. The quilters have shared their expertise, their talents, stories, laughter and even some tears and stitched together quilts to be awarded to veterans who have been touched by war. Some quilts have presented unique challenges but with shared ideas and encouragement they came together beautifully. It is hoped veterans who recieve these quilts find themselves wrapped in comfort and healing. Thank you from The Quilted Steeple to everyone who had a hand in making this weekend so inspiring and success. A special thank you to Mary Behrens for another inspiring dedication service! She’s the best!

It was a productive day at our Quilts of Valor retreat. The creativity of these women always amazes me and this year is no different! Their heartfelt caring towards the veterans who will eventually receive the quilts is sewn in every stitch. Love hosting this group of American Legion Auxiliary members and friends.

Happy New Year to all my favorites who visit The Quilted Steeple...cheers to 2021!!!
Dreary weekend = PERFECT weekend for quilting and......cooking 👩‍🍳 We have another fun and talented group at The Quilted Steeple! Did I mention they are patient? They requested biscuits and gravy and finally got it on day two 😘🦌 Thanks for the therapy and fun ladies......you rock 🧵
Thanks Quilted Steeple for such a great place for us to have a great time.
What a fun-filled weekend with these Scrapbooking Sisters 🤩 There were many smiles and giggles behind their well-padded masks 😷🤣 Thank you for allowing me to serve and take care of you......I totally enjoyed your stay👩‍🍳
Great job, Kelly! That's quite an accomplishment. I Love seeing photos of everyone's masks so thanks very much for sharing. BTW, we love having you and your friends at The Quilted Steeple! I certainly hope this craziness gets over soon so you can all come back!
i have made 205 masks and counting along with surgical caps. Just a few photos enclosed. for samples. WE are great group and stepping up to the plate!!! Thank you Quilted Steeple you are my favorite retreat center always and your HEART shows way!!!
I am still making masks for my community and family, I am at 256 as of this morning. Since the snow is coming for tomorrow I am making masks to send to Sanford in Sioux Falls with my daughter in law who is a nurse there.
Just finished #150. They have been picked and distributed to area vision clinics, a couple nurses and a librarian. Ready to make another batch!
do you have a pattern avaible for the masks?
I have made masks for all of the post office employees in the Belmond cluster. I am Furnishing masks for the people in Corwith. They can be picked up at Corwith farm service. 74 and counting.
Hi Steeple People! We are changing to a Sew-in to a Sew-In/Sew-Out Mask Making Event. The Quilted Steeple will be the hub and I will be there 8AM to 9PM (or later) on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. You are welcome to come sew there (maximum 5 people per floor of the church and parsonage, with stations at least 6 feet apart) or call (for carside service) or come by and pick up patterns, supplies and fabric if you need. You are also invited to grab a traveling bowl of Jan's homemade soup and a snack for the road! You can then drop off your finished masks to the tub at the Steeple any time before Sunday night at 9 pm. The bedrooms will be open for sleeping if anyone wants to make it a real marathon!!!! (Free will offering appreciated). Saturday the bedrooms will not be available for deep cleaning. I have the Chlorox wipes ready!! If we can get 20 sewers at home or at the Steeple to do masks for 8 hours, we can make 500/day (they are easy and you can easily do 4/hour). My goal is 1500 masks! (2000 would be better!) Please also feel free to donate fabric any time after 8 am on Wednesday. Also, if you have 1/4 inch elastic, I could use that too, in case my "shipment" doesn't come in. We can also do tie masks if no elastic. I will also post the patterns I have found to be most helpful/ best fitting. (wire in nose and filter pocket) but all masks will be accepted. Come'on People!!!! We got this! Julie (517) 331-0126
