QUILTCON-Community Service Opportunity

Several meetings ago, we discussed an opportunity to participate in a community service project in conjunction with QUILTCON, the inaugural quilt show presented by the Modern Quilt Guild.

from the Quiltcon specifications: As a way of giving something back to QuiltCon’s host city of Austin, Texas, we’re going to use the blocks that aren’t selected for the raffle quilt to make quilts for each of the 46 beds at the Austin Children’s Shelter. This will be MQG’s first large-scale charity project and we look forward to both using the many beautiful blocks we received for the challenge and getting as many guilds as possible involved in the process!  The quilts will be due to be delivered by, February 1, 2013.

So, I have registered our chapter as interested in completing a block, and we should expect our bundle of seven (7) blocks in the coming weeks.

I have the following members as interested as follows:

Jessica Fabula
Cortney Flores
Peggy Kelleher
Amy Kiger-Williams
Debbie Krajkowski
Amy Rehbein
Melanie Tuazon

Once the blocks come in, we will meet to review them and to begin our creative process. 

If you are interested in adding your name to the list, please email me at k puryear AT gmail DOT com (remove the spaces). ~ksp
