community quilts

Community Quilts is the service project for Mountain Top Quilters. We meet the 4th Monday of each month for a workday. Finished quilts are distributed throughout the community to non-profit hospices, children adoptive services, and family and women’s shelters. We are most grateful to Las Fuentes who allows us use their community room for our monthly workday.

Their address is 1035 Scott Drive, Prescott. Please park on the west side of the building. The garage door is unlocked 8:30–10 am.  After that, enter at the main entrance and go downstairs.

The next Community Quilts workday will be on the fifth Monday, November 30 due to the holiday.

There will NOT be a workday in December due to the holidays.

Remember to bring your sewing machine, $3 for pizza, or your own sack lunch.  coffee, salads, and desserts are provided

General meeting:  at the CQ table pick up quilts needing quilting, tying, or binding and a quilt top kit.  Drop off UPC codes from Hobbs batting.  Bring finished projects. 

Always Needed:  Hobbs UPC codes!  Hobbs gives us a nice discount with their UPC codes and we used them up on our last order. 

Recommended quilt sizes:  Quilts for children and adults should be rectangular, approximately 46” x 56”----nothing too much bigger because of the difficulty of quilting on a domestic machine.  Baby quilts should be at least 36” x 46”.

We need boy’s quilts---from toddler to teenager.  So, if you have any ready, please bring them to the November general meeting and Kay will deliver them before the 21st.

See MTQG promotional video Here.

Where Do Our Community Quilts Go?

Community Quilts leaders for 2015-2016:

Place Mat instructions for Meals On Wheels Project

I delivered 110 place mats to Meals on Wheels in October.  That makes a total of 184 to date.  We are well on our way to reaching our goal of 200 place mats. We will be accepting place mats at the November meeting which will allow me to get the labels on and the place mats delivered to Meals on Wheels in time for their holiday deliveries.  Thank you so much to everyone in the guild for making this project a success.

With your help we are having a terrific time selling tickets for our opportunity quilt. It is currently on display at Seams Sew Right. Our next event will be at the “Last Minute Stocking Stuffer Bazaar” December 19 at the Old Armory. And then In January at the Wickenburg Quilt show the 29th and 30th. Sign-up sheets will be available at the meeting. In February we will be at the American Quilter’s Society (AQS) Quilt Week. This event is from Thursday the 11th to Sunday the 14th.  I will have a sign-up sheet for ticket sales but in addition we need to provide help at the show.  Below is information on how to sign up to volunteer. If you can help please sign up, let me know if you have questions or contact Melissa Winters from the website. I also need to know who has signed up to help at the show so Melissa and I can make sure the volunteers get the time slots they want. I had to try the link twice to get the sign up schedule to appear. Thanks in advance for your help.
