zigzag charity quilt

I help my congregation make several charity quilts each year. Tuesday we started with a potluck soup night and cut up the 14 yards of fabric they brought into strips and squares for 3 quilts. We asked for donations of 1 yard pieces of 'man' fabric. (It took so much less time than when we used scraps to make them, like here.) Here is the top of the first one;
Pretty neat. Consider 2 women learned how to use a rotary cutter and 2 of them did not know how to sew...and they all sewed at least a strip or 2. There was a baby there that the woman not working got to hold. So they took turns. We got together Wednesday and Thursday afternoon too. I get to press it and trim it ..and quilt it. We have until September to finish them all.

I think we are off to a good start!
