About a year ago, I wrote two blog posts with respect to a couple of stitched squares I was donating to the organizers of a Facebook group called “Xstitch for Those Impacted by the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting”.
These squares would later be turned into quilts, wall hangings, and pillows for the families, school, teachers, and emergency first responders.
As you probably gathered by the name, the group was formed shortly after the tragic incident, for cross-stitchers to “gather” and sign up, and commit to their contributions.
Once the squares were received, they were “placed” and made into quilts. Recently, photos of the quilts were posted in the group. Here are the two quilts that contain my contributions:
I think the quilts came out beautifully, and I hope they provide some comfort to the families for which they are intended.
