Join in Making a Quilt for CQC President Laural Hoppes
You are invited to participate in making a quilt for 2020-21 CQC President Laural Hoppes to thank her for all she has done and will continue to do for CQC in the coming year. The CQC board decided on making house blocks since staying safe at home — and quilting at home — has been the tenor of her presidency. Laural loves blue and white so be sure these colors are prominent in your block. Here’s how you can contribute to this project:

  • Make a 9.5” x 9.5” house block. That means a block that is 9.5” x 9.5” unfinished. 

  • Be sure to include blue and white fabrics and anything that makes the block personal to you.

  • Sign your block.

  • Send your block by June 1, 2021, to Dawn Mills, 2596 S. Rifle Street, Aurora, CO 80013.​
