Come to Guild prepared and ready to work on charity quilts, sowing the seeds of generosity within the community. The Charity Quilt Group has chosen the disappearing 9-patch quilt in various sizes — Baby 36″ X 40″, Twin 63″ X 87″, Double 80″ X 95″, Adult day care 55″ X 65.” This pattern is a simple sew and adaptable to the various size requirements. This is a perfect opportunity for you to rid your stash of leftover 5″ squares and partial charm packs that have no purpose. If you don’t have stash to share, the committee will provide 5″ squares; however, we do need fabric that reads neutral and solid colors. You can construct your 9-patch blocks ahead of time and then split them at the sew-in according to the instructions provided by the committee.
The Charity Committee will display a finished quilt at the meeting and provide a sample block for each table. If you have a group that sews together you may divide responsibilities for supplying the equipment your group will need. The Charity Committee will have a supply of 5″ blocks to mix and match, two irons and boards for ironing stations, and cutting mats and rotary cutters for two cutting stations. All you need to fulfill this community need is charity in your heart, and a sewing machine to piece these pieces of art together. Design elements allowed.
