Got Cuddle Quilts?? Bring 'em in!

Cuddle Quilt made using
pre-cut strips and the "lasagna"
quick quilt assembly method.

Do you have any cuddle quilts in the works? Now is a good time to finish the quilting and get them bound! A representative from the Chambliss Center for Children in Chattanooga will be talking about the Center and sharing its mission in a presentation at the April Choo Choo Quilters guild meeting.

The Choo Choo Quilters and the Chambliss Center have had a long-time partnership through the guild's annual Cuddle Quilt Project. At the January guild meeting, a demonstration on making a "lasagna quilt"—a quick sew technique using pre-cut fabric strips—was given that could be used for making Cuddle Quilts. A show and tell of quilt tops followed at the February meeting. Guild members are urged to finish any of these tops and bring them to the April 15 meeting so they can be presented to the representative from the Center.

Several lasagna quilts were turned in at the March meeting. You can see a Show and Tell of these colorful quilts here. Be inspired to finish yours!
