We are on our way to Christmas already with 20 Quilts of Comfort and 7 stockings completed for My Sisters Place. Keep those quilts, stockings and Santa sacks coming in. In August, we also received 7 more donated quilt tops and a bundle of fabric. We appreciate all of our donations.
In July we handed out “Slab Block” patterns and rolls of fabric. So far we have 39 blocks returned. There are lots of rolls out there, when you have a few minutes, whip up your slab blocks and bring them to guild. When we have most slab blocks returned, we will organize and coordinate them into lap quilts.
A reminder that Donna will be collecting “Days for Girls’ bags in September for our presentation of bags in October.
Thank you to everyone for their ongoing support of our community projects.

A few more photos from the Sit n Sew….
On April 9 QCG hosted a successful sit n sew. Nineteen members spent the day working on a variety of quilts of comfort and two raffle quilts in support of My Sister’s Place and Matthews House Hospice, respectively. We were happy to see member Doreen when she popped in for a visit. Good conversation, snacks and laughter rounded out the day. Thanks to everyone who participated.
