The Ventura MQG is requesting charity blocks to be made to help the victims of the Thomas Fire in Ventura County. The block design is the Perkiomen Valley Block, designed by Scott Griffin, the guild’s vice president. Members of the Ventura MQG are assembling and finishing quilts for fire victims as they receive blocks, and they would like to receive enough materials to make at least 50 quilts. They are also accepting quilt tops, finished quilts and quilt supplies.
This fire is about an hour drive south of me, and we are being affected by the smoke that has to go somewhere. I will be making blocks over the next week or two to send.
Information and questions can be directed to communications@venturamode
My lovely friend Jess from Quilty Habit shared a post yesterday about the Modern Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) Quilt Along with the Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild, and I wanted to share those details. I have seen many people in the #2018PlanningParty express a desire to explore Free Motion Quilting more, so this could be the QAL for you!
Find out all the details about the CJMQG FMQ QAL on the CJMQG website!
