Oodles of Flowers

Our Sunday School class is responsible for this quarter's dinner and program for "Refresh-HER", a ladies' program at church. The speaker liked the poem "Bits and Pieces" from my blog and decided to use that as the theme of her talk and they decided on a quilt-theme for the decorations for the evening. They asked me to come up with something quilt-related that would have the poem on it for each of the 32 tables, so I've been making these for the past week. I finally finished them up late Saturday night and, even though they were fun to make, I have to admit I'm glad I'm finally finished and can move on to something else!
