DH and I went through my quilt storage today and found 3 that we wanted to send along. 2 were never on a bed, only used as curtains.

Our guild was founded with a major aim at community service. We have our own opportunity quilt, many comfort quilts and a fundraiser quilt for the Senior Center, where we meet. When other needs come up, one or all of us jump in. We keep our dues at $5/year, and waive those if the cost is too great for a potential member. Anyone may attend. We seek to be as inclusive as possible.A nearby guild has $60 dues.

Don't I wish your guild was close to me. There is one guild to the east, 15 miles away and they meet at night. There is another to the west, also 15 miles and sure nuff, they only meet at night. Too many deer on the roads and I have trouble seeing after other cars pass, their headlight blind me. Thank goodness for you ladies online. Very Happy

Same here, Red, I really dread driving at night and avoid it unless absolutely necessary.

QMN, that is a great guild, I can see why you are a member.

And in my area I can only find guilds that meet during the day. Not retired yet, no way to be active. Sigh.

Our guild met at night until the majority of members were retired or had night vision problems. We are not set in one way. Our members come from as much as 40 miles away

Ours is the poorest county n the state. There are many calls on our resources as a guild. We no longer have a library in our community, having lost all county funding. While we had one, we contributed to an annual county-wide library quilt. We do what we can.

guild meeting today. We have 28 finished quilts, a few to bind and orphan blocks for 2-3 more. I was irritated that the question was raised if someone who is burnt out and on her second round of cancer should get a replacement for her previous comfort quilt. My dear friend, Tammy, solved that one by handing over 2 of the 4 completed quilts I donated for that elderly couple. Thumbup Life is hard enough without being persnicity.

It turns out that the majority of those burned out have left the county, so many of these quilts will go to the victims of another fire.

Doesn't really matter who or where, if someone needs one, they need one. Shame that folks had to leave their homes.

Awful that someone even voiced that question, let alone thought of it in the first place. The people who have left, were they tenants? I always feel for those who own the property that is destroyed and are forced to rebuild on it and keep living there when sometimes, a fresh start would be so much better, some where else. My parents sold our block of land after our house burned down, they didnt want to live there anymore. A guy I know rebuilt but they built a totally different style of house and made it all look totally different with some earthworks, a new dam etc, they wanted no reminders of how it used to be. So glad you got some many quilts, I looked but didnt really find any orphan blocks, Im sure I had some but I have no idea where they got to.

We have rules about comfort quilts. The people who usually remind us of the rules are the ones who decided they needed to be broken. Generally, If someone objects to the one quilt rule in a particular case, that person just goes ahead and makes one. We are pretty easy going about things like that. We don't argue much as a guild. My dear friend, Tammy, just announced that I intended that quilt to be for the cancer victim. (I didn't even know about her, but that' OK, Tammy knows how I feel about quilts for cancer victims.) I am our results but I know with over 1000 homes lost just south of us, we can't possible get everyone helped.

We now have a total of 35 full time residences that were destroyed here. This is quilt 28, with some still in the works, so I think we are doing well.


I made 3 of the 9 blocks. Someone else took my idea and flew with it. I am busy on the binding.
