The Island Quilters Guild
2018 Upcoming Events!
Spring Quilt Challenge - Mini Quilt
The quilt will be due at the May Meeting when we have our picnic and welcome the new Board. A mini quilt is no larger than 24" square with all aspects of the quilt reduced in scale. You can design your own or look for patterns online. It can be any theme you would like - you are only limited by size and your imagination!
The Guild is starting a neonatal quilt bee to make tiny gowns and wraps for babies that were lost to miscarriage or were stillborn. These items will be given to the Neonatal Unit at UTMB. If you are interested in participating, please contact Marilyn Haupt.
Block Challenge - Just "Leaf" Me Be by Bonnie New
Bonnie New designed this block after doing some gardening. There are three sizes of leaves for you to use. Use one or use them all in your blocks! Use raw edge applique or turn the edges, its your choice. Download the pattern and instructions on our Challenge Block page. These blocks are due at the May meeting.
