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.

Thursday, July 5th: DIY Patriotic Celebration of Quilting

Program at 1 and 7 pm

We all have created patriotic quilts, wall and table decorations that we display throughout the year on patriotic days.  Since we already have many July 4th pieces out of storage, let’s share your favorites with each other today.  Please bring your patriotic items for a special Show and Tell. Today’s program also includes a DIY patriotic pattern swap and a red, white and blue fabric exchange. We will be sitting at the round tables today.  You bring some table decorations and we’ll provide the ice cream.

DIY instructions for July 5th:

  • Bring favorite decorations
  • Trade patriotic patterns
  • Swap holiday fabrics
  • Celebrate with your friends

We will still end our meeting with the regular Show and Tell.
