Veterans’ Quilts

November 2017

Veterans’ quilt project received a lovely quilt from Jen Linton, thank you.
My goal is to receive donations of patriotic appropriate fabric to prepare some kits for the January sew-in, previously limited to kids quilts. Feel free to bring donations to December meeting so I have time to prepare a few kits.
Remember, if you prepare a quilt , it can be any size from 40 by 40 to larger, up to and including twin size. Lap quilts, 40 by 60  are a perfect gift to a veteran.
Thanking you in advance for participation.

If anyone is interested in getting together to plan, pool fabric, cut and sew, please contact Gail Picket.

Every quilt is a gift and our veterans thank you.

 Members make quilts for donation to the veterans at the Coatesville Medical Center.  You can donate a quilt or fabric or blocks in red, white and blue colors.  If your bee would like to make some blocks or a quilt, we would be happy to receive it!  Most of our donations are large lap size quilts.
Please make sure your quilt has a label to make it special and personal. Suggestions: Thanks to an American Soldier/ Calico Cutters Quilt Guild 2017 or your own name or special message.
Please support this on-going project.
