Comfort Quilts Exciting News!!
Comfort, Spaulding, and Recovery Quilts A BIG thank you to all who have contributed to the Comfort Quilt collection thus far. It is so much fun to see all of the beautiful work that goes into these donations. There are kits available at every meeting. Stop by the CQ table at the general meeting and sign one out. They make up quickly.
So far this year I have delivered four recovery quilts to women who have completed the first phase of the recovery education program at the Belknap County Community Corrections Center. There are currently six women active in the program. They asked me to let you know that watching their peers receive quilts is a great inspiration to them. We have 13 quilts on hand right now.
Thanks to those who have brought twin-ish size quilts to me recently. Another BIG thank you from the Spaulding Quilts project. As of May 2nd, 16 quilts for children have been delivered. An additional six quilts have been given to Spaulding as “generics” to have on hand. There are currently two new quilt requests: Jordan -15 year old boy who likes trucks, super heroes, and the colors blue & red Shane -10 year old boy who likes football and the colors black & red Please email Karen if you are interested in making either of these quilts. The comfort quilt program has PLENTY of fabric to help get you started on a Spaulding quilt. There are also patterns and ideas for backings that can be found at the CQ table at the general meetings.
Thank you to all of you who have given generously of your time and talents.
