PROJECT WARM HEARTS

Charity Quilting with the CQC

Project Warm Hearts provides quilts through the work of CQC members who make blocks, sew blocks together, quilt, and bind the tops. Backing and batting are provided, and you may participate at whatever skill point with which you are comfortable.

We hope you will make some blocks and turn them in at the CQC General meeting. Each block you submit earns you one point towards your chances of winning an entire quilt for the charity organization of your choice. There are about 20 blocks in each quilt that is completed. Points are also earned by helping with the completion process. Kits of fabric and quilts in progress are available at the General meetings.

If someone is not able to attend the meeting, blocks and quilts in progress can be mailed to Heather at :

726 Folklore Ave, Longmont, CO 80504
