Museum Quilt Guild maintains an active community service program. Each year we host 2 work meetings where members gather to work on quilts which will be distributed into our local community according to need. Members also donate quilts they have made themselves. Currently we distribute to the VA Medical Center, All Babies Cherished, Brooklyn Street Migrant Children's Outreach Center and the YWCA. We also distribute to local families who may have suffered a tragedy as well as on the national level to those that have endured catastrophic situations.
2019 Schedule of Workdays
March 16, 2019. After our regular guild business meeting we will gather to work on making blocks, assembling quilt tops, basting and quilting. Lunch will be soup and salad as well as other foods brought in by members.
May - August, 2019 - "Log Cabin" - kid friendly center.
This is a traditional log cabin pattern which starts with a 5 inch square of kid friendly fabric for the center. Each of the logs will be cut 1 1/2 inches wide and your finished block should be 11 inches square when completed. Click here for photo instructions.
NEW: We are collecting member made placemats for meals on wheels in Genesee County. We will be collecting for the next few months, and hope to have 110 placemats to share. Feel free to use any placemat pattern that you like. The recipients are roughly 60% female/40%male, so we would like to have a variety of designs and fabrics.
HOLIDAY OUTREACH: This year, we will partner with the Salvation Army to make gift bags for area children. Bag patterns will be coming soon—we will not be filling the bags, but will pass the bags as well as donations on to the Salvation Army for distribution.
