100 Charity Quilt Challenge

Our president Mary Woltmann has challenged the guild to make 100 quilts for charity this year. 

Norma Payne is heading up a charity committee to work cooperatively on charity quilts.  Some do cutting, others do piecing, and still others do quilting.  It is a great way to be able to participate without feeling the pressure of completing a whole quilt.

The Wednesday Group is also working as a group doing some sweatshop sewing to produce charity quilts.

Several individual members of the guild are also very active in producing Quilts of Valor, quilts for premature babies, etc.

Kathy Onstead has volunteered to be the Recorder, so if you have done a quilt for charity this year, please send email to Kathy so that she can chalk one up for the guild.  Keep those emails coming.  The list will contain any and all quilts constructed by the guild in groups or by individuals. 

Let's show Mary that we are up to the challenge!
