Boston Strong Quilts…
Hello North Parish Quilters. I am writing you to try and find 4 people to sew 4 Boston Strong Quilts.
Many of you know Colleen Whary who had been a member of North Parish Quilters for some time. Colleen started a project for victims of the Boston Bombings and put together many kits and had a comfort quilt workshop to make about 40 + quilts for the victims of the bombings. I was able to get batting from Warm and Natural donated and also got an additional dozen Tee Shirt centers with the Boston Strong Logos from Chowderheads in Peabody. Colleen was kind enough to prep these center panels for me and I am trying to complete these 12 kits for these victims. Jane Norberg ran a comfort quilt day at St. Marguerites Church recently and 8 kits were given out and are nearly complete and ready for distribution.
I still have 4 quilt kits ready to give away to someone who has a few hours to make up these quilts. They are about 48 X 50” and all squares and strips are cut for you and ready to just sew, sandwich and bind. The kit has a simple pattern , backing and batting is also included in these kits.
If any of you would please help out and take one of these kits, it would be appreciated. Colleen Whary is keeping the list of those who need quilts and these will go to Colleen for distribution. Thank you.
I will have these kits at the meeting on Wednesday – only have 4 kits and only need 4 people to come forward. Thank you so very much.
