Get a Pattern, Pick your fabric, SEW

Quilts of Valor will be sewn by our quilt members in November.

Clarke County Piecemakers will have three teams - Red Team led by Pat C.,

Blue team led by Carla B, and White Team led by Sheryl J. Blue team has one opening.

The Purple Heart team is open and needs four members.

1. Patterns- each team choose your own. Quilt must be at least 55 x 60 inches.

2. Fabric- Use good quality 100% cotton fabric that will wear a long time.

3. Sew date will be Nov. 11 Veteran's Day or whatever your team decides. Location is being checked on depending on availability.

Quilt members who want to contribute, can check with a team leader as backing, batting and fabric will be needed.

Each team will need to keep a journal to record the story of the quilt. This is meaningful to the recipient. Also make a presentation case and be sure the quilt is labeled.

Feel free to recruit non-guild members to be part of your team if you would like.
After a quilt top is made, a long-arm quilter that volunteers will quilt the quilt and return it to be finished.
This will be a fun and I can't wait to see the results.
