Each year, we make small kid-friendly quilts to donate to the Chambliss Center for Children, which provides 24 hour affordable daycare and early childhood education, emergency foster care and residential care for children who have been removed from their homes.
In keeping with our 2015 Challenge Theme, we'll have panels, batting and backing fabric available for you at the workshop, along with other fabrics You are also welcome to bring your own fabrics to work on any design you want. You can work on piecing a top, layering and spray basting your quilt before machine quilting, or even tying your quilts during this time. We have members with experience in all aspects of quilting, so come and learn something new!
