Community Service at Allatoona Quilters’ Guild

About a week ago we spent the day working on cutting up fabric for community service quilts and pillowcases. We have a lot of fabric donated to us so we cut a lot into 2 1/2 inch strips and a few other shapes to make other kits.  We also cut up a lot of pillowcase kits.

Here are some of the strips – we had both regular cottons and batiks.

0915 Strips

0915 Batik Strips

I took these photos fairly early and the boxes were almost full of strips by the end of the day.  Later on we sorted the batiks and make jelly roll equivalents.  We ended up with 14 full batik jelly rolls and several partial ones.

Barb made sloppy Joes – very good and there were lots of chips and other goodies to go with.  There were a couple of cakes and the most Dunkin Donuts boxes I have seen in one place.  There were enough donuts for the whole police force!

Fun day!
