** Sizes of cut fabrics needed for Community Quilts**

10", 6 1/2 ", 5", 4 1/2", 4", 3 1/2", 3" and 2 1/2" squares

If you have scraps you'd like to contribute to Community Quilts, please cut to the sizes above.

Our goal in community quilts is to provide members with the opportunity to help create quilts for our charity donations. In 2017, we donated a record number of 127 quilts to various organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Genesis House and veterans at St. Francis hospice.

 

Instead of asking members to create an entire quilt individually, we make available various projects each month. It can be as simple as a bag of scraps to cut into specific sizes, blocks to be pieced, a quilt to be quilted, binding to be attached, etc. Instructions are included with each project.

 

There are no deadlines, no forms to fill out, no quilt police to critique your work, only a grateful community which appreciates the end result of many hands. Feel free to take a project; learn a new technique; practice your skills and contribute at the same time. All efforts are appreciated.

 

When you turn in your project, don’t forget to put your name into the community quilt box for the monthly prize and the big “annual” gift.

 

Opportunity Quilts

 

Throughout the year, special quilts are donated by various “mini-groups” or individuals which are then displayed for several months. Members have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the chance to win the quilt. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. Drawings are held at meetings, you do not need to be present to win. All proceeds go toward the expenses of community quilts, such as batting, storage supplies, etc.
