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.

Our next workday is Monday,
July 28, 2014 from 9:30 until 2:30 pm at Las Fuentes Retirement Center.

For the workday, remember to bring:

your sewing machine, $3.00 for pizza, or your own sack lunch.  Coffee, salads, and desserts are provided. 

KIDS’ QUILTS!!!---WE NEED THEM!!! 

Our inventory is quite low on kids’ quilts --- we typically donate approximately 65 quilts per year to the CASA kids’ adoption ceremonies in addition those given to other agencies.  Especially needed are teenage boy quilts.  Could you make one or two?  Or could you donate at least a yard of fabric in themes like flames, cars, trucks, motorcycles, guitars, or sports?

At the general meeting: 

Stop by the Community Quilts table in the fellowship hall to chat with Marty and Kay.  Please pick up a quilt to be quilted or tied at home----we currently have 38 quilts available.  We also have kits for kids’ quilts and some for adults----the hospices report needing more masculine quilts at this time.  Drop off any finished quilts.

Reminder:  Community Quilts collects UPC codes from Hobbs and Mountain Mist batting to purchase batting at a discount.  Please give them to Marty or Kay.

Community Quilts leaders for 2014-2015: Kay Denny and Marty Lensink.

Campers we are busy planning our Fall Camp this year at Emmanuel Pines Camp in Prescott on October 7 thru October 9.  The fee this year will be $130.

Opportunity Quilt Design:

We have been gathering ideas for the 2016 Opportunity Quilt and will be presenting our top picks to the membership for a vote at the August general meeting.  If you have seen a quilt pattern that you think would make a lovely, highly marketable quilt, please submit it to us at the July meeting so we may include it for consideration.
