Call for Blocks
(contacts: Julie Parrott, Connie Tresize, Laurie Watson)
This year we will be continuing the Road to Tennessee blocks (BLOG LINK)
. Finished blocks or quilt tops can be brought to monthly guild meetings. Julie, Connie, and Laurie will be set up in the back of the room. You can also help by picking up one of the quilt bundles (includes top, backing, batting and binding) to complete the quilting and binding. The more finished quilts we have on hand the more quickly we can respond to each new call.
Seniors First Placemats
In case you haven’t already found out, making placemats is a quick and easy way to clear out your stash of orphan blocks and fabric. Seniors First includes our placemats as part of birthday gifts delivered to their Meals on Wheels and other program clients.
Large Drawstring Bags
contact: Jan Bilbro)
Another great stash buster for a good cause are the drawstring bags (takes about 1 yard of fabric) that are given to kids aging out of foster care who would otherwise use a large plastic garbage bag to carry their clothes and belongings. Jan mentioned that smaller bags were also needed so check with her at the next meeting.
QuiltCon and Festival of Trees quilts
Committees will be set up to design and coordinate these annual projects.
