Guys, this amazing lady is on track to make 100 twin-sized quilt tops this year! Evelyn Schweitzer from Marion, Ohio turns 85 this weekend and has conquered cancer twice but she still whips off 100 quilt tops per year and has done so for the past eight years running. All these quilts are donated to the Lutheran World Relief program and distributed all over the world. Here's how Evelyn does it:
"She works on the quilts about five at a time, sometimes spending one day cutting out the pieces then another stitching them together. It takes about three hours to make a 60-by-80 inch quilt top of alternating squares, but longer, eight or nine hours, if Schweitzer decides to take on a more intricate pattern, like her favorite, Lover's Knot."
Can you imagine having the goal of 100 quilt tops and taking the time to make some of them with this fancy Lover's Knot block?
So many people's lives have been touched by her quilts - what a way to make a difference and do something fun. Yay, Evelyn!
