Loving Touch

Guild members can help our community through quilting. There are numerous opportunities for us to reach out and provide a loving & caring touch to others in Edmond and surrounding areas. These projects reach a wide spectrum of the population from infants to the elderly.

The Guild's fabric stash is in need of some child friendly additions, especially boy stuff and backings. So the next time you're out shopping you might consider purchasing some for the Guild or pass along some from your stash. Perhaps you made a purchase and aren't sure what to do with it. We can USE it!

Below are details of our Loving Touch opportunities:

Placemats
14" X 18"

Placemats will be given to Edmond's Meals on Wheels. Each person receives a handmade placemat. It means a lot to our home bound people. You can make any design. Your only limitation is your imagination. Their small size makes them a great opportunity to practice quilting or trying a new and challenging technique.

Becky Bierle has designed a cute birthday cake placemat that you may wish to use, or feel free to create your own design.

Baby, Youth, Lap Quilts
40" x 42" or 40ish x 60ish

These will be delivered to OU Medical Center Children's, OUMC/INTEGRIS Birthing Suites, The Hope Center, Edmond Fire Department, and the Infant Crisis Center.

The Guild can provide you with fabric, batting, and QUICK & EASY PATTERNS. You can pick them up at the monthly Guild meeting. If you need something specific just let me know. I can come and pick up your finished projects if that's convenient for you. If you want to make just tops I have people that will finish them up for you. There is such a need in our community, from as little as 30 to or 100 quilts. We have found that these agencies gratefully appreciate your gifts.

If you have any questions or comments, contact Mary Schooley.

Quilters are such BIG HEARTED & CARING PEOPLE. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing all your creative quilts you have made.
