Congratulations to all our winners. If you missed the show, come to our next meeting May 28th - challenge winners are encouraged to bring their quilts to show again.
This was our 2018 raffle quilt made from the winning blocks of last year's "Raining cats and dogs" block challenge.
At each monthly meeting, there are always neonatal quilts displayed in our Show & Tell Section. These are donated to our local hospital and are a wonderful ongoing way to support our club in donating to our community.
Quilts need to measure 18"-20" and may be made to suit boys, girls or unisex. Easter or Christmas themed quilts can be good for parents whose children happens to be born on a holiday.
Cotton fabrics are best and polyester or poly cotton battings inside are fine.
Please NO wool batting or Polar fleece backs.
