Quilts – all sizes! At each monthly general meetings we will have quilt top kits, quilts to be quilted, and quilts to be bound for you to take home and returned finished.  Reimbursement is available for batting with completed form and finished quilt. We have labels for you to sew on your donated projects. We love cotton and flannel fabric donations, preferably yardage, of a quality and type suitable for use in a quilt. 

Burp Cloths:  This is an on-going need.  We have a pattern available, but you can make them out of a nice soft flannel in any shape you choose.

Pillow Project Particulars: Pillows for Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital patients should be square with finished size between 11” and 13”. These pillows are best with light stuffing (polyfil) only–do not make them super firm. Our guild label needs to be sewn on the back of the pillow.  Please bring all completed pillows to Community Quilts–we keep track of the number of our donations and deliver them to the hospital.

Come sew with us on the first Thursday of each month at Ruth’s from 10 to 2. And check out our blog posts for updates on new items and current needs. Questions or suggestions? Please call or email me. Thank you for all your time and beautiful quilts.

Finishing School:
Are you feeling overwhelmed by all of those unfinished project in your quilting closet? Paulette Stenberg and Karen Oetgen will be on hand to help you on the road to finishing. Bring your sewing machine and project to the Carriage House at the Museum in Newport on the 4th Thursday every month except November and December from 10-4. (Temporarily canceled.)

Small Quilt Groups – Friendship Groups:
Small groups meet regularly in Yachats, Waldport, Newport, and Lincoln City.  Find one near you and include yourself.  It is a good way to meet others with similar interests in a setting that is less hectic than a meeting.  Click on this link to view the groups.  http://oregoncoastalquilters.org/small-quilt-groups/

2022 Challenge – Trees!

(Please see entry under “Projects”)

 

Small Quilt Auction:
Each year at the Quilt Show we have an auction of small quilts donated by OCQG members. The designated charity will be selected in a drawing from participating members. Because we’re space-limited, we’d like quilts to be no more than 100 ” in perimeter. You may set a minimum price/starting bid price, or note an estimated value, or both. Let Jean Amundson, Joy Johnson, or Velma Freudenthal know if you’ll participate, and turn in quilts no later than the June meeting.

Pot Luck/Christmas Tea:
We usually have two potlucks a year – May and December. The potlucks become the program for the General Meeting during those months.
