The Let’s Build Beds quilt challenge is a child friendly
(age 3-17) twin sized quilt. You may enter only one for the challenge, but you are welcome to donate as many as you wish. For more info, check your program book or a recent Pieceful Times.
**The recipient of our quilts will be “Let’s Build Beds”, led by Shawna and Michael Horvath who spoke to us in September. Let’s Build Beds makes twin-sized beds for needy children from 3-17 years. New linens, mattress and pillows are included. We get to make twin-sized: 60”x72” quilts.
**As these are larger quilts, two people can work on one. The quilts must be 3 layers and quilted, not tied, for the challenge. They must be machine washable and dryable. Child-friendly colors and motifs are encouraged, but ages 3-17 gives us lots of choices.
**Members may make as many as as desired, but only one per person will be eligible for a prize at the May meeting. The prizes that will be awarded are as follows: first place- $100, second place- $75, third place- $50. All gift certificates are from the Quilt Foundry.
**Let’s Build Beds’ mission statement is “Every child deserves a bed of their own to sleep in at night. We believe every child is full of potential.” This is a 501-c3 non-profit serving NW Ohio and SE Michigan.
