Community Service Day at Allatoona

We spent the day on Tuesday cutting kits for community service quilts. We have a lot of fabric that has been donated and decided that if it was cut into kits, our members would be more likely to take a kit and make a quilt.

As usual, Barb had everything organized so well. We had a basic pattern drawn up in EQ6 to show several sizes of quilts from small baby quilts to large lap sized quilts for older children.

The fabrics were a somewhat strange collection but we only needed 4 fabrics for each kit and we found that we could find enough fabrics that went together so that they should be attractive quilts when finished.

Mary and I decided to cut together and managed to make kits for 4 quilts. Mary fussy cut an interesting civil war fabric for the squares for a quilt - it should be appreciated by an older boy. We also used farm fabric for one kit and a Hawaiian print for another.

The highlight of the day was lunch. Barb's husband made a large pot of sloppy joe's and lots of people brought other snacks. I took a loaf of pumpkin bread that had turned out really good.


  1. That looks like a really fun time! Nice work to all of you!

  2. Wow, you had a really good turnout. I like seeing guilds work on charity projects together.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
