The Pine Tree Craft and Quilters held their Sixteenth annual quilt show on February 18, 2012 at their quilting location, the United Methodist Cooperative Ministries’ facilities on Colin Kelly Hwy. These talented ladies spend countless hours making quilts of love for those less fortunate in our area. Each year, 36 handmade baby quilts are distributed to the Healthy Start Coalition at this event, which will go to infants in Jefferson, Madison, and Taylor Counties. This doesn’t include their signature “baby bundles” they make from more baby quilts, some baby items and a layette. These attractive gift bundles (60 total last year) were delivered to the Madison County Health Department. In total, the quilters made and distributed 155 quilts to various organizations in the tri-county area.
Please join the Coalition in thanking these women for their efforts, time, and love that goes into making the wonderful heirloom quilts for our local babies! These are the most philanthropic women in our community in terms of the time they give to our families.
A heartfelt thank you goes to our quilters:
