Quilts and Covers

2017 Block Book

Here are some ideas for those of you who don't have time or fabric enouch to make an entire quilt for Quilts and Covers but still want to help.  Look at the 2017 Block Book for some ideas!

Quilts & Covers is the service group of Cottonwood Quilters. Quilts have been presented to numerous organizations throughout the years — Sewing for Babies, Lutheran Family Services, Rainbow House, Hospice House, Youth Emergency Services, Divine Shepherd Preschool, Open Door Mission, Habitat for Humanity, Catholic Charities, Project Harmony, New Visions (Homeless Vets), and College of St Mary.

This year we are having 2 raffle quilts. One donated by one of the small groups and an antique one found in an attic and finished by one of our long-arm quilters. Only paid members of the Cottonwood Guild are eligible to purchase raffle tickets. Drawings will be held at the November and May meetings. Proceeds will go toward specific needs for the program.

In March 2017, we will also have a Saturday event to celebrate National Quilt Day. Look for more information to come out in the newsletter and on the website. We will spend the day in a round robin type event where everyone will rotate through several stations to work on making quilt tops. 

Please stop by our table either at the morning or evening guild meetings and volunteer to assemble a quilt top kit. There will also be work mornings and work evenings most months held at St John’s Lutheran Church located at 322 N Molley Street in Bennington. The work mornings are Tuesdays from 9am-2pm while the work evenings are Thursdays from 5pm-8pm. We hope to see you at a few of the events to help out!

NOTE: There are no work mornings or evenings in November
