Quilting on the Common Catch Up

Photos by the awesome Taz
Every Quilts for Boston event has been fun but Quilting on the Common was truly special!  Last Sunday we braved the heat, packed up our sewing supplies, and headed in to Boston.

Nestled in a shady sport with a lovely view of the famous Make Way for Ducklings statues we kicked back to sew, enjoy each other's company, and soak up the entertainment around us..

Gone was the rush to get things done that's been so much a part of our previous events as we raced to get quilts finished for those who need them.  Today was a day to relax as we put the finishing touch on these special quilts, the Quilts for Boston label that identifies them as part of this incredible effort.
