                                    COMMUNITY QUILTS

  Good News! Sara Hill is back in her condo and most of the Community Quilt donated fabric is back on
  the shelves in her garage. Thanks to an army of Asheville Quilt Guild members who took time out of
  their busy weeks, it's all organized and neatly folded, and ready for you to come choose what you'd like
  to work with. So if you need inspiration, a backing, or some fabric for a binding, give Sara a call and go
  by! Why not take a road-trip to Sara's garage with your Bee and have a Community Quilt Challenge?
  And now that we've sorted through all of that wonderful fabric, Community Quilts has several
  opportunities to offer in the next couple of months:
  • The Challenge Bags that I told you about last month were very popular at the last meeting, but
      there are more, so if you missed it last month, stop by the CQ table at the next meeting and choose
      one for yourself or your Bee.
  • At the July meeting (and continuing until they are gone), Community Quilts will be selling “scrap
      bags” for $1.00, and using the money to buy backing fabric for community quilts. These are pieces
      that were not-quite a-full-fat-quarter, or small usable size pieces that we didn't have the heart to
      throw away. If you like to do crazy quilts, appliqué or paper piecing, these are for you! A gallon-
      sized zip-loc bag stuffed with wonderful pieces for your own next project (not for Community
      Quilts, unless you want to).
  • The August meeting of the Asheville Quilt Guild is going to be a flea market. When we sorted the
      donated fabric we found an abundance of “fat quarter-ish” pieces. Some may have a small piece cut
      out, some may be 1/2 yard pieces folded like a fat quarter. That's not what folks are usually looking
      for in Sara's garage, so Community Quilts will be selling those for “2 for $1.00”. Once again, these
      are for your own projects, not for Community Quilts (unless you decide to donate it when it's fin-
      ished). So bring your money and a tote bag, shopping bag, basket, backpack, rolling suitcase,
      wheelbarrow or whatever you like to use to carry home your finds. This will be a bonanza for your
      stash! Community Quilts will use the proceeds for buying backing fabric for members to use for
      community quilts.

  Happy Quilting!
