QUILTS OF VALOR
Hello Sew Friends,
I hope everyone is enjoying the start to summer. It’s already hot! Because of the heat, we need to stay in and sew, sew, sew!
Cuddle Quilts received 21 completed quilt tops and 11 quilt tops at the May Guild meeting. I was very excited to receive so many. My room runneth over so I took 30 quilts to the Children’s Advocacy Center on May 18th. They were super appreciative. While I was there, they mentioned if I knew of any organizations that make bears, they are in need for those as well. I thought I would share with you if you know of a group that would work on making bears, they would be appreciative.
Time is counting down to the end of the Panel Quilt Challenge in July. We will have one more guild meeting to check out a kit or you can choose to use your own panel and make a quilt for the challenge. Just stop by the table so I can issue a number for you so you can be entered into the contest. There is going to be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize and you don’t want to miss out!!!
Our next Cuddle Quilt Bee is June 21st. We meet at First Baptist Church in Tyler, 301 W. Ferguson Street. You would enter through Door #4, go down the hall, and take the elevator to the 4th floor and then follow the sound of laughter. Come join the fun we will be in the craft room! Bring your sewing machine, and regular sewing notions. We have cutting mats, rulers, irons and ironing board.
