Comfort Quilts: The October 1st gathering to work on comfort quilts at the Quilters General Store has been cancelled since we have many tops completed. (These are given to our members if they have lost a spouse or have serious medical issues.)

We need four volunteers to help us get these tops quilted. Please contact Anne Brown or Vicki Tallacksen if you would like to quilt one for us. If you do not care to do the binding, we will take care of that. We will have the quilts at the October 4th meeting.

Thanks, Anne and Vicki

Make comfort quilts. 1:00-4:00, Quilters General Store

Something New for Comfort Quilts – During the months of Autumn consider using fall colors for your comfort quilt blocks. Then, through the Winter months, design your blocks using winter or cool colors. Spring taps into our floral or bright fabrics. Of course, ANY block you prefer to make is appreciated and used in the comfort quilts we give our members. Please make blocks 12 1/2” X 12 1/2”. (We will also be sewing comfort quilts on Oct. 1st, same time and place.) Questions – contact Anne Brown.

NOTE: You can still work on circular and geometric projects and quilting techniques and get our help throughout the year.
