About North Parish Quilters

North Parish Quilters’ Guild of North Reading is a 29 year old organization of 150 members who meet the second Wednesday of each month from September to June at the Union Congregational Church, 148 Haverhill Street, North Reading, MA 01864 NPQNews @ gmail.com

Batting Scraps

Debbie Cioffi is looking for donations of batting scraps.  Yes, that’s right!  Aren’t we always wondering what to do with our batting scraps?

Debbie will take pieces that are as small as 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″.

These will be pieced tighter for Yawkey Family Inn quilts and also used for charity dog and cat beds.

Please bring your scraps with you to the June meeting and give them to Debbie.

Hole in the Wall Quilts

Marcia hosted a get together for everyone who helped out with the Hole in the Wall charity quilts.

Here are some photos of all of the quilts.  The guild made an amazing 86 quilts!  It really was wonderful to see all of those bright and cheery quilts.

Thank you Marcia and Pat for all of your hard work putting the kits together, piecing and quilting and organizing the effort to get all of these quilts ready for the campers.

 

 

Pattern for the 2010-2011 Mystery Quilt

2010-2011 Mystery Quilt Pattern

There has been a lot of interest in this quilt from visitors to our site.  I finally had an opportunity to ask Linda Lydecker if she still had the pattern for this quilt.  She shared the whole pattern with me, as well as the separate clues that she prepared to make  this a Mystery Quilt.  The original pattern is from Cute Quilt Patterns and the copyright allows for use by individuals and quilt guilds members.

Mystery Quilt Revealed

Now that Linda has helped us to solve this year’s Mystery Quilt let’s give credit to Debbie Caffrey who wrote the original pattern called “Sew What”.

Thank you to Debbie for making this pattern available for us to use and to everyone who participated in this year’s Mystery Quilt.
