Community Quilters and 2020 Raffle Quilt Ticket Sales
Here’s the latest and greatest from Community Quilters.
Needs. We have about 10 quilt bundles that we need to get quilted, assorted sizes. A lot of the agencies that we serve are really ramping up again and we are trying to build our inventory so we will be able to respond when the needs arise. We also have some quilts that need binding. We are also short on pillow cases in all “themes” – male, female, adult, child.
We are not able to “meet” on the 1st Thursday of the month at this time, and I don’t anticipate that happening anytime soon. In the meantime, we are trying to keep up with the quilt tops that many of you have been making, getting them put together into bundles with batting and backing. It would be fantastic if we could get some help making “backing” fabric out of the fabric that we have on hand, which means piecing together large pieces of fabric to create backs, especially for some of the larger quilts. I will be happy to deliver fabric and target sizes to anyone who is willing to help out with this. This is a simple task, but it will make our “bundling” process go so much faster if we have the backings already created.
Update on the Porch Drop House Blocks. So far, we have 3 wall hanging sized quilts that have been put together. Pictures are attached. We have 5 blocks still needing to be put together into a quilt or two, so please give me a call to get these constructed. Then we need some of our quilters to help us out by quilting them. They are so creative and fun. Everytime I look at them, I see something new! These will be donated to agencies to use as fundraisers. They really are so representative of these times!
Thanks to all of you who continue to support Community Quilters. Please call or email or text Sue or Lindanne (contact info below) if you can help out!

Also, guild member Doni Boyd sent something amusing Covid thoughts. Here are a few of them:
1. Another Saturday night. I just realized that even the trash goes out more than I do.
2. Is it too early to put up the Christmas tree? I’ve run out of things to do.
3. Day 45 of social distancing. I struck up a conversation with a spider today. He seems nice. Says he’s a web designer.
4. Remember when we were little and our undies had the day of the week on them? That would be helpful now.
5. And you thought dogs were hard to train? Look at all the humans who can’t sit and stay. . .
6. So wait a second—you’re telling me that my chance of surviving is linked to the common sense of others?
