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.

August 25, 2014 is our next workday. from 9:30 until 2:30 pm at Las Fuentes Retirement Center.

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

Newcomers are welcome: We piece, sandwich, bind, machine or tie quilts and make quilt kits.  Drop in and we’ll find something you’d like to do.

Still needed:  Kids’ quilts (especially teenage boy) and men’s quilts.  The hospices have requested some patriotic quilts for the men.

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

Note:  if you find yourself project-less between meetings, give Marty a call (925-1872) as she has sandwiched quilts and quilts to be bound at home.  And, if you’re working on a CQ quilt at home and need additional fabric or batting, come to the workshop and pick some up.

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