Making quilts for the Steve O’Neil apartments
The first quilting session at Peace was held July 21 with 25+ people from many churches, book clubs and quilting groups from around the area. Enthusiasm was high and all left with a plan in mind. In addition, one quilt was tied and a lot of fabric was sorted and distributed by the end of the evening…….and we managed to have a few laughs!
Progress is being made, but there remains a lot to do. Some will be working at home or in groups elsewhere, but we have set a few work dates in the weeks to come so we can tie finished tops, do a bit of on-site sewing and cutting, and keep tabs on how we can support each other. I have put in an order for batting so that will no longer be a problem.
Bring your own scissors and other equipment and join us for the next sessions.

Besides “human power” I am hoping we will be able to solicit donations for some of the following:
- Cotton remnants and yardages
- Queen size flat cotton sheets…. Any plain color or lengths of muslin for backing (90 inches wide)
- CASH! I will be buying batting and other supplies.
- Checks can be made to Peace Church with “quilts” in the memo.
- There is no more need for yarn! Thanks.
LOOK FOR A BIN BELOW THE COATRACK NEAR THE OFFICE, AND A CASH DONATION JAR IN THE NARTHEX!
