Please be aware that there is always a need for quilts for the Hospice of the Chesapeake.  The quilts are lap size, no larger than 50 x 60.  There are several quick quilt patterns available or choose your own favorite quick quilt.  They prefer red, white and blue as the quilts go to the veterans, but they will take any quilt you make. Please keep this cause in mind when you begin your next quilt.

Once a year we have a meeting that provides demos and handouts that are great for quick charity quilts.  This year's date has not yet been chosen but the announcement will appear in the coming meetings posting.
November is fast approaching and so is Quilters Quest .  All of the participating quilt shops are offering buses to help their customers make the circuit of shops on this year's Quest.  This year's Quest will last 10 days, from Oct. 19th until Oct. 28th.  To alleviate the crowds of the past, most shops will schedule no more than 2-3 buses per day.  Several shops have already added more days to those already scheduled because of interest, so if you are planning to go, sign up early.
