Hurricane Harvey – Care Quilt Response to Red Cross Need

Nicole had a fantastic idea and contacted our local Red Cross to see if they had any needs for quilts. She dropped off 36 quilts today with Red Cross. If there are any left over, we will get them back and share with our regular local groups.

That being said, we have a need to increase our inventory again, so if you have a UFO or been wanting to try out a pattern, please don't hesitate to start sewing away. Every category - adult, kid and baby is needed. Standard care quilt size is about 45x45. Will take smaller size for baby quilts.

If you can bring your quilt to the next meeting, Nicole and Stephanie M. will be at a table ready to receive. Send me a text message if you need me to pick up your donation or need fabric/batting, 432-230-0969. We have yardage, so if you need a backing, I can bring you some choices. 

As a reminder, making a care quilt counts towards volunteer hours and needs to be captured when you sign in at the next meeting you attend.

Hope everyone is staying safe and finding ways to help those in need.

Care Quilts Project:

Monday June 12th is our Care Quilt workday!

NEW LOCATION: St.Thomas Episcopal Church, 906 George Bush Dr., College Station


Please join us at, anytime between 9 am – 3 pm. Bring your machine to sew or just show up! We will be needing to tie quilts! Copme join us and learn how it's done! We'll find a job for you to do! It will be a fun experience that helps so many people who need a Care Quilt.

Since 1996 over 4,424 care quilts have been made and distributed by the BBQG.

Quilts are always needed and can be donated at any guild meeting! The only request we make is that you just do your best work! Begining quilters are more than welcome to participate in this activity - we will be more than happy to teach you!!

Optimum sizes: 36" x 45", 45" x 45", and 45" x 60" in any color, tied or quilted, designed for men, women or babies - cheater cloth is just fine! Note: we will take ANY size quilt you can give us as larger quilts are sometimes needed!
