CHALLENGE 2019-2020*

Due to the cancellation of our May meeting, please bring your Challenge quilts to the September meeting. 

Project Linus Comfort Quilt Challenge​

Project Linus is comprised of nearly 300 chapters across the United states and Canada. All are directed by volunteers who work from their homes. Mission statement: First: Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need, through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.” Second: Provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local chapters.

This year our guild wrote and received a $500 grant from Ohio Quilts, a statewide organization that promotes quilting.  The grant paid for several rolls of batting.
