We are Building Quilts to Make Friends
January we collected eleven placemats, thirteen twin YMCA quilts, four
pillowcases, one Veteran quilt, nineteen baby quilts, and one lap quilt.
members took home eighteen pillow case kits, seventeen
quilt-tops-to-piece kits, seven tops to quilt, fifteen placemat kits,
and two quilts to bind.
In all fifteen members checked-in
projects and thirty four members checked out projects. We are
excited that some brand new members took home projects to finish.
thanks to the following guild members for their donation of time and
effort for Community Giving in the month of January: Jill Pickett,
Judi Smith, Karen Macon, Judy D'Iapico, Linda Wilkinson, Bonnie
Hamling, Rod Turner, Linda Mould, Sherri Street, Peggy Kirk, Margaret
Simmons, Patrice Weber, Sue Conard, Janet Pitman, and Barb Anderson.
Our Community Giving focus this year is on our Habitat for Humanity lap
quilts. These quilts are given to the home owners when they take
possession of the keys. The quilts are a memento for a job
accomplished. See our website
for a HOUSE BLOCK PATTERN that you could use in the quilt, either one
or many houses. These instructions make two 12 inch blocks.
Perhaps each member of your small group could make the two blocks and
then combine into a small quilt.- Sandy Lanning and Terry Holt, Community Giving Chairs
