Collaborative Quilt Projects

The Collaborative Quilt Project is a monthly block prompt to make quilts together for our community partners.  Each month a block and color pallet will be presented at the monthly meeting.  Members have the opportunity to make as many blocks as they want and bring them to the next meeting.  The blocks will then be put together by a volunteer.  These are good scrap busting projects that we can work on together to provide comfort and warmth to someone in need.
