Quilts For Comfort Quilt ‘Til You Wilt

Fun, Fellowship, Door Prizes, Pizza & Snacks! Please come and join us to work on any Quilt for Comfort of your choice.

Friday, January 23, 2015, Noon - ?? Guild meeting room, Life Covenant Church

If you would like to compete in a jelly roll race, bring at least 40, 2 ½” (wof) strips.

If you need inspiration, there will be easy and fast quilt patterns available at the January meeting to take so you can get any other fabrics you might need. I would like to keep a notebook of patterns, in the closet, for everyone to use for ideas on the Q4C quilts. If possible please return any patterns so we can keep a nice selection available.

I’ve also purchased 10 yards each of solid white and cream fabric for backgrounds. They will be available on the 23rd. Batting will also be available.

Come join in the fun! If you can’t stay until you wilt, come for a few hours and help press or cut. Let’s get our quilt stash built up ladies!
