If you have any fabrics / UFOs / Orphan Blocks that you would like to finish and donate this would be a good organization to donate to. Masculine, feminine, traditional or modern all quilts are workable.
Block patterns for <12-1/2 inch blocks ( stars) unfinished : 12 inch finished> will be available at the January meeting. They would like them made up and brought in to the meeting in FEBRUARY. If you want to get started now here are links to web pages you can find patterns on.
QUILTER'S CASHE .... any block will do ... these are just suggestions
Bring a machine, basic sewing supplies. An extension cord would be helpful. Cutting and ironing stations will be set up. There are all kinds of jobs for all kind of quilters…. If you can we will also need quilters to take the quilts home and do the FREE MOTION QUILTING ….
SOME quilt kits will be available at the February Sew In. Any style acceptable. We would like the quilts back at or before the June meeting when they will be donated.
Correction: THIS is a Miracle Quilts event .... it was erroneously reported to be Quilts of Valor... sorry for any inconvenience and misinformation... ... These are both great groups.
