Veteran’s quilt project

In March, Covid 19 arrived which disrupted the best laid plans for presenting our quilts of “thank you” to veterans from Lincoln County.  Instead, we made “porch drops” to our veterans.   Our quilts are so appreciated and thanks to all who participate in the block of the month veterans quilt blocks or all the other work that goes into keeping this project going.

We gave out 13 quilts in May and have 13 names submitted for labels to be made as I write this.   Cheryl Kramer has joined our team as our record keeper and Dianne Tillotson has joined us to help make the beautiful labels that we stitch to the back of the quilts.  Thank you ladies!  Now, we ask each of you to give us a few hours of your time to make blocks or put a top together, or machine quilt a veteran quilt for us.  The block kits (as we have at the guild meetings each month)are at Ruth’s in Waldport open 12 – 4 Tues – Sat and at the Cove open 12 – 2.  Thanks to Ruth and Holly for offering this service to the guild.  If you will make a top, Twy  541-563-3899 has the sashing, border & backing fabrics as well as the blocks submitted each month ready for assembly.  Please contact her to get the supplies.  Thanks Twy.

At this writing, we have 21 requests to fill and know of 14 that are “in the mail”.  We need your help!  Thanks to all of you.  Stay safe.  Many thanks from the Veteran’s project committee.

A thank you note from Jerry Pryor after receiving his veteran’s quilt.

Dear Rose,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for honoring me with this generous veterans quilt. I’m totally amazed at the workmanship, the beauty and the sentiment sewn into each stitch.

As I look at this beautiful quilt, I’m taken back in time to the many challenges I faced during my nearly two years in Korea. Like most veterans, our military experiences represent a period of time we would rather not revisit. However, as I stand here and my eyes begin to water starring at the quilt, I begin to realize how important it was for me to be in that country at that particular time to defend America. For the first time in my life your gift makes me proud to be a veteran. This quilt is much like wrapping yourself in our nation’s flag.

Again thank you so much for this amazing and beautiful gift. It will remain with me for a long time and hopefully on day I’ll be able to give it to one of my children.

You folks at the Oregon Coastal Quilters Guild are truly amazing.

Jerry Pryor

Community Quilts

Are you NOT making masks because you ran out of scrap fabric? 
Or the fabric you have is designated for future projects?
Well, Community Quilters has LOTS of scraps!
I am currently putting together pre-cut masks kits, adult and child, with or without elastic that I can deliver to your porch in groups of 10 or more.  Or if you would prefer to cut your own, I can provide coordinating fabric in fat quarter size or smaller for you to cut and sew.  Let me know what you would like by email, text or call and I will deliver it to your porch very soon.  I can pickup when you are done or you can drop at one of our local stores.

A Note from Lisa Taylor

Dear Guild Members:
Here are two quilts I made and had planned to put in the show this year!  The paintings on the wall hanging were done by Vicky Frecknall, a vendor at the Yachats farmers’ market.
Next, I have lots of batting cut-offs for anyone who is making pet beds or gift bags for wine bottles.  If you’re interested please get in touch with me.
And speaking of getting in touch, my email is changing from to .  My new email is
And last, my cell phone got run over on 101 and I might not have the new one till June 9, so please use my home phone number.
Thanks so much!
