Mt Bachelor Quilt Guild’s main service project is the Community Quilts
program which also helps with our non-profit status. We serve the six agencies listed below plus an occasional
request for a “raffle” quilt. We
make and donate about 300 quilts every year. Each member is asked to make at least one community quilt
per year. It might be easier to
remember that you need to submit a quilt in your birthday month! Of course, we love it when you make
many more. We also accept
donations of cotton quilting fabric and quilt tops. Think of us when cleaning out your stash!!
Our monthly Community Quilts day is held the Wednesday after the regular
meeting. We meet at Nativity
Lutheran Church, 60850 Brosterhous Rd from 11:00 until 3:00. Please join us for a fun day. Bring you machine, basic sewing
supplies and lunch -- learn some new techniques and meet new people.
Also, anyone can drop by to pick up supplies or get help with pinning a quilt
We have quilt kits and quilts to finish available on Wednesdays and
during the guild meetings if you do not want to make your own. Bring your completed quilts to our
guild meetings so we can show them off at the meeting. Each quilt needs a label and we have
them available at the meetings and on Wednesdays.
Agencies are listed below along with some information and the general
sizes of quilts needed. Please
make any size quilt you are comfortable sewing. Quilts will always be donated to one of our agencies.
