Patricia Roddy, an R.N. from Strawberry, was one of the volunteers at the Quilt Angels Quilt-A-Thon in Pine March 15. The Quilt Angels and other quilting groups are an alliance of caring people who practice compassion for their fellow man through fabric and thread.

From March 14 to 16, angels gathered at the First Baptist Church in Pine — more specifically the Quilt Angels quilting group, for the annual Quilt-A-Thon to make charity quilts for those who will need a little extra comfort and warmth next winter. There were 12 Quilt Angel members, along with 16 volunteers who lent their hearts, time and talents to the three-day event. They made 213 quilts and 100 Christmas stockings. The Angels are housewives, retirees, mothers, grandmothers, teachers, nurses, office workers, artists and others from all walks of life, all united in a mission to help others. The beautiful and colorful material that was used for the project was donated to the group by someone known only as the Fabric Angel, with the stipulation that the creations would not be sold but given to the less-fortunate.
