Charity Quilts Descriptions – Fall 2016

              Kace gave an update on our charity quilt projects. 

o   Pre-school nap quilts in the 40"-50" range are needed. 

§  We give them to a variety of places including Judy K's organization for homeless day care children and Project Linus. 

o   quilts in all sizes from baby to adult.

§  Case Nueva Vida in Jamaica Plain.

o   lap size to bed size

§  We are also committed to providing quilts to our service men and women through the Veterans Administration.  Quilts with a red, while, and blue focus are particularly appropriate, but any color-way is appreciated. 

§  A suggestions was made that if we make an extra Block of the Month in patriotic fabrics each month, at the we'll have a good start on a patriotic sample quilt by the end of the year. 

Kace brought lots of fabric for the taking to make charity quilts.  Bring these quilts in for show & tell before sending them off to these organizations.

Patterns for Charity Quilts

Here's a blogger who has been collecting patterns for easy charity quilts who states she hopes guilds will use her page as a resource. Yay! Clearly it's ok to use this link.( I found that photos of about half the quilts didn't load on the page but the links to those patterns were all working.)
