QUILTS OF VALOR
Hello Sew Friends!
Because of the holiday season, Cuddle Quilts did not meet to sew this month but we did get together to celebrate
each other on December 10th. We met at the Red Dome in Quitman and then shopped at Stitching Heaven. If you
have never eaten at the Red Dome restaurant before, you are missing a treat! The food was delicious! We enjoyed each other’s company and I realize how blessed I am to be part of such an amazing group! Christmas will be over by the time you receive the newsletter, but the magic of Christmas never ends and its greatest of gifts are family and friends. Some of my greatest friends are quilters!!! Cuddle Quilts will continue to creating quilts to bless our community and I am looking forward to what 2022 will bring for Cuddle Quilts.
Announcing our Cuddle Quilts Panel Challenge!
Cuddle Quilts is very excited to announce a new contest for all guild members. Beginning at the January guild meeting we will give out quilt kits that contain a fabric panel plus coordinating fabric. Your challenge will be to make a beautiful and unique Cuddle Quilt from your kit (or even an ordinary, boring quilt will do!).
You will have until the July guild meeting to completely finish your Panel quilt, including quilting and binding. At the July meeting all participants will show their quilts and all the members who are present will vote on their favorite. And remember, their favorite won’t necessarily be the best pieced, best quilted, or prettiest panel, it will be the quilt that they just like best. The top three winners will receive great prizes, and all the quilts will be donated to Cuddle Quilts programs.
So please visit the Cuddle Quilt table at the next guild meeting and pick up YOUR Panel Quilt Kit. It’s a great way to support your guild’s community service efforts while having fun and winning prizes too!
The next time Cuddle Quilts will meet will be January 18th from 10-3 at the First Baptist Church in Tyler in the craft room. We hope that you will be able to join us!
