Quilts and Covers

Quilts and Covers is the Guild’s ongoing project. Our quilts have been donated to many organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, Heartland Family Services, Quilts for Babies, Boys Town, Sienna House and many more.

This year we will continue to offer fabric to make your own tops, tops that have been partnered with batting and backing to quilt, squares to be sewn, and quilts to be bound whenavailable. We will have fewer workdays scheduled this year. We can always add days if the need arises. We will offer a morning workday and an evening workday. Both will be held at St John’s Lutheran Church located at 322 N Molley Street in Bennington. The morning workday will be on Tuesdays from 9am until about 1 pm and evenings.

On March 10, 2018, we will also have a Saturday event to celebrate National Quilt Day. Look for more information to come out in the newsletter and on the website. We will spend the day in a round robin type event where everyone will rotate through several stations to work on making quilt tops. We will have a potluck lunch.

Please stop by our table either at the morning or evening guild meetings and pick up materials to assemble a quilt top, to quilt a top, or to work on squares that will be assembled at the March event. If you are looking for ideas for tops, check
out the Block Book on the Website.
